Editor: Lewis Jones (submitted 2010-05-24).   Score information: A4, 21 pages, 133 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: For AATB.ATBB.TBBB. Down a fourth from high clef original in accordance with chiavette transposition rules. The continuo part is editorial. It is likely that choir I comprised of three instruments with a solo voice, choir II of a cappella, and choir III of a solo voice and three instruments, though all parts are suitable to sing.

Plaudite, psallite.
Jubilate Deo omnis terra.
Benedicant Dominum omnes gentes
collaudantes eum.
Quia fecit nobis cum Dominus
misericordiam suam
Et captivam duxit captivitatem;
Admirabilis et gloriosus in saecula.
