Edition notes: The keyboard accompaniment given on the Air and Bass staves in the source, which largely doubles the inner voices, has been omitted from this edition. The notes given here as two semiquavers and a quaver, on beat 1 of bar 3 of the soprano part, are given in the source as two small semiquaver grace notes slurred to a full-sized crotchet. The line given here as the alto part from the last quaver of bar 4 to the third quaver of bar 6 is given on the 'Air' stave in the source, marked 'Trebles'. Only the first verse of the text is given in the source: subsequent verses have here been added editorially.
