Edition notes: The original order of parts is 2nd - 1st - [Instrumental bass] in the opening symphony, and Tenor - [Alto] - Treble - [Bass] - [Instrumental bass] thereafter. The alto and tenor voice parts are given in the treble clef an octave above sounding pitch in the source. The concluding symphony is given on the voice parts in the source, with the second treble-range instrumental part (given here on the alto stave) printed on the tenor stave at the same pitch as given in this edition (i.e. this has not been transposed by an octave in transcription). The first verse of the text is underlaid in the source, with four subsequent verses printed after the music: verses 2 and 3 have here been underlaid editorially.
