  • CPDL #23067:      (Sibelius 3)
Editor: Edmund Gooch (submitted 2011-01-28).   Score information: A4, 1 page, 28 kB   Copyright: Public Domain
Edition notes: The alto part is printed in the alto clef in the source.
The only indication of text in the source is the title 'Ps. 9th' and the opening words 'To Cellebrate &c.': the first four verses of the text have been underlaid editorially.
The alto G on beat 3 of bar 11 does not have a natural in the source, but the tune is printed with a double barline separating beats 2 and 3 of this bar (i.e. separating the third and fourth lines of the tune): furthermore, there are examples elsewhere in Church Harmony of accidentals being repeated where they apply to more than one instance of the same note within a single bar, indicating that the accidentals only apply to the notes they immediately precede.
