- Edition notes: The alto and tenor parts are printed in the source in the alto and tenor clefs respectively, and only the first verse of the text is given (three selected subsequent verses have here been added editorially). The pairs of notes given here as slurred minims, on beats 1-2 of bar 16 in the soprano and tenor parts, are shown in both these parts in the source as a small minim grace note slurred to a full sized semibreve. The figures '76' are printed under the semibreve B on beats 1-2 of bar 22 in the bass part in the source, but do not appear to correspond to the harmony and have been omitted from this edition.
