- Edition notes: Original order of staves is 2d. - 1st. - [Instrumental bass] in the opening symphony, and Tenor - [Alto] - Treble - [Bass] - [Instrumental bass] thereafter. The 2nd part of the symphony after the verse is given on the Tenor stave in the source, but is given on the Alto stave in the present edition. The Alto part is notated in the treble clef at the upper octave in the source. The first verse of the text is underlaid in the source, with the other verses given here printed after the music.
Description: Setting of verses from James Merrick's metrical version of Psalm 122. The same text was previously set by Clark to two different tunes: 'Aldham', in A Fourth Set of Psalm and Hymn Tunes, London: [c1808], and 'Palermo', in Clark's Seventh Book of Hymn Tunes, London: [1813-1815].
