Edition notes: Source - Piae Cantiones ed. Woodward. The alto second syllable of 'virginae' is a tone lower in the source and the facsimile of the original Piae Cantiones. Convention appears to have amended this, and as it is more logical (unless the Es are flattened, which I suspect was the practice) it has been adopted. Adapted for SAATTBB
