Edition notes: The order of parts in the source is Tenor - Alto - Treble - Bass (identified at the start of this tune, as it is the first item in the book), with the Alto and Tenor parts printed in the treble clef an octave above sounding pitch, and a keyboard accompaniment (marked Organ, and referred to on the title page as ‘For the Organ or Piano Forte’) indicated in small notes on the Treble and Bass staves. This accompaniment largely doubles the inner voice parts, and has been omitted from this edition. Only the first verse of the text is given in the source: subsequent verses have here been added editorially.
