Edition notes: The order of parts in the source is Tenor - Alto - Treble - Bass (identified in the first piece in the book), with the Alto and Tenor parts printed in the treble clef an octave above sounding pitch, and a keyboard accompaniment 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. The F and E on beat 2 of bar 13 and the D and C on beat 3 of bar 18 in the Treble part are both printed in the source as a full-sized crotchet followed by a small semiquaver grace note, and have been realised in this edition. Only the first verse of the text is given in the source: selected subsequent verses have here been added editorially.
