- Edition notes: The time signature in the source is retorted time. Only the first verse of the text is underlaid in the source: three subsequent verses have been added editorially: it is suggested that if the second verse given here is sung, the dotted minim in the soprano and tenor parts in bar 41 should be split (as shown in small notes) to avoid word-splitting in the text. The note shown here as C♯ in the soprano part in bar 26 has no accidental in the source. The E and D on beat 1 of bar 27 in the tenor part and the G on beat 1 of bar 30 in the soprano part are printed in the source as small quaver grace notes and have been written out in full editorially.
