- Edition notes: From Cathedral Music, Volume 2 (William Boyce). Boyce included a continuo accompaniment which is probably not by Blow. The "decani", "cantoris", "verse" and "chorus" indications may also be by Boyce. Boyce also sometimes "improved" on his sources (the original source has not been consulted for this edition).
