Edition notes: The original order of staves is 2d. - 1st. - [Instrumental bass] in the opening symphony, and Tenor - [Alto] - Treble - [Bass] - [Instrumental bass] thereafter. The second treble instrumental line of the closing symphony is printed on the Tenor stave in the source, but has here been moved to the Alto. The line given in this edition as the alto part for the first four bars after the opening repeat mark is given in the source as a '2d Treble' part, printed on the tenor stave at the pitch given here: the remainder of the Alto part is printed in the source in the treble clef an octave above sounding pitch. The first verse only of the text is underlaid in the source, with the other verses given here printed after the music. The first and second time bars have been added editorially to accommodate the repeat shown in the source, and the shortening of the sung note in the first time bar is an editorial suggestion - this note is shown in the source as a semibreve, as in the second time bar, but with a repeat segno mark above it.
