Edition notes: The order of parts in the source is Alto - Tenor - Soprano - Bass, with the Alto and Tenor parts notated in the treble clef an octave above sounding pitch. The Soprano and Bass parts are bracketed together in the source, with small notes printed between to fill in the harmony of a keyboard accompaniment doubling the inner voices: this accompaniment has been omitted from the present edition, with the exception of some notes not doubled by the voices, which are given here as small notes for instruments. Fragments of the first verse only of the text are given in the source: the rest of this text has been underlaid editorially.
