Editor: Christopher Shaw (submitted 2018-12-03).   Score information: A4, 21 pages, 251 kB   Copyright: Personal
Edition notes: Please click on the link for preview/playback/PDF download. All four published settings (4,5 6 and 8 voices) are of the first verse only. Verses 2 - 7 have been imported editorially and verses have been made interchangeable (re-iterated voicings, etc,) within the discrete settings. Thus the performer may integrate differing verses (and the unharmonized plainsong) to present an entire hymn of varied textures and sonorities.
