Edition notes: The original order of staves is [2nd. - 1st. - Instrumental Bass] in the opening symphony and Tenor - [Counter] - Treble - [Bass] - [Instrumental Bass] in sung sections. Symphonies during and after the verse are printed in the source with the 2nd. part on the Tenor stave: this has been given on the Counter stave in the present edition, at the same notated pitch. The C in the first and the A in the second instrumental part on the first beat of bar 24, given here as quavers, are printed in the source as quaver grace notes followed by a crotchet B and G respectively. The first verse only of the text is underlaid in the source, with the other verses given here printed after the music.
