Edition notes: Original order of staves is Counter - Tenor - Treble - Bass: the counter part is notated in the source in the treble clef, an octave above sounding pitch. The vocal bass part is figured in the original: this figuring has been omitted from the present edition to facilitate the underlaying of the text. The first verse only of the text is given in the original: subsequent verses have been added editorially, on the basis of the title 'Psalm 69th. 1/2, 16, 20 & 29/30 Verses' in the original. The treble G and tenor B on beat 1 of bar 21 are printed in the source as small grace notes, and have been editorially written out in full.
