- Edition notes: Previously published in "History of Music" by Charles Burney, 1776. Burney omits the sharp on the C in the second alto part, bar 51 and changes the D in the second bass part bar 43 to an F. The sharp to the C and the natural to the B in the first alto part in bar 54 were added by Burney and have been retained. Slurs between minims (half notes) in this edition represent ligatures between semibreves (whole notes) in the manuscript.
