Edition notes: This alternative edition is transposed a tone higher and incorporates some part swaps between the voices now designated Alto 2 and Tenor. This may be helpful because one of the lines (resolution of a canon) lies in an awkward range as originally scored, and it is more practical to share it.

Salva nos domine vigilantes
custodi nos dormientes
ut vigilemus cum Christo
et requiescamus in pace.
