Edition notes: The parts are printed in the source in the order Tenor - Alto - Air - [Bass] (as identified in the first tune in the book): the tenor and alto parts are both printed in the treble clef, an octave above sounding pitch, and the air and bass parts are bracketed together, with small notes in between filling out a keyboard accompaniment that largely doubles the harmony of the inner voices, and with the bass part figured. In this edition, the air has been treated as the soprano line, the tenor and alto are given in their usual clefs and octaves, and the keyboard accompaniment notes and bass figuring have been omitted. The time signature for this piece in the source is retorted time. Only the first verse of the text is given in the source: subsequent verses have been added here editorially. If the verses printed after the music here are sung as well as the underlaid verses, then the words which are underlined should be repeated by the soprano and tenor parts, to accommodate the repeat of a partial line in the tune.
