- Edition notes: The original order of parts is 2nd - 1st - [Instrumental bass] in the opening symphony, and Tenor - [Alto] - Treble - [Bass] - [Instrumental bass] thereafter. The alto voice part is given in the treble clef an octave above sounding pitch in the source. The concluding symphony is given on the voice staves, with the treble-range instrumental part printed on the tenor stave at the same pitch as given in this edition (i.e. this has not been transposed by an octave in transcription). The first verse is underlaid in the source, with the subsequent verses given here printed after the music.
Description: Hymn Tune Index tune number 13216.
The tune appears in the early 19th century manuscript book of James Hurford of Spaxton, Somerset (Somerset Archives: D\P\chlch/23/1), headed 'Psalm 136 or 148', and with three verses of the metrical New Version Psalm 148 underlaid, beginning 'Ye boundless realms of joy', in place of the Watts text used by Clark.
