Edition notes: The alto part is printed in the source in the treble clef an octave above sounding pitch. The only indication of the text given in the source is the title 'Psalm ye 132d'. Whilst the book specifies the psalm to be used for each tune, it only additionally specifies the version for one tune (Ps. 14 N.V.), implying that the Old Version should be used for all the other tunes. An editorial selection of verses from Ps. 132 O.V., by Thomas Norton, has been added.
