Edition notes: The order of staves in the source is Tenor - Alto - Soprano - Bass, with the alto and tenor parts given in the treble clef an octave above sounding pitch. The Soprano and Bass staves are bracketed together and a keyboard accompaniment is indicated between these parts with small notes: this keyboard accompaniment (which largely doubles the inner vocal parts) has been omitted from this edition. Only the first verse of the text is given in the source: subsequent verses have here been added editorially.
