Editor: Edmund Gooch (submitted 2015-01-23).   Score information: A4, 2 pages, 48 kB   Copyright: Public Domain
Edition notes: This edition is based on the first publication, in Richard Garbett's Sacred Harmony (1818). Verses after the first are printed after the music in the source, but have been underlaid here. The two vocal parts of the duet in bars 7-14 are both given on the soprano staff in Sacred Harmony. A keyboard accompaniment given in Sacred Harmony has been omitted except for the instrumental bass part in bars 7-14, which is taken from the keyboard left-hand part: other than this, the accompaniment doubles the vocal parts.
