Edition notes: The parts are printed in the source in the order Tenor - Alto - Air - [Bass] (identified at the start of this tune, the first item 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 soprano and tenor notes in bar 6, given here as a dotted crotchet slurred to two semiquavers and a crotchet, are given in the source as a minim, two small quaver grace notes and a crotchet. In bar 12, the same pattern of notation is used in the soprano part in the source, as well as in the small keyboard accompaniment notes a 6th below corresponding to the alto part, although in the sung alto part itself, only a minim E and crotchet D are printed. The ornamentation has here been transferred to the sung alto part. Only the first verse of the text is given in the source: three subsequent verses have been added here editorially.
