Edition notes: The Alto and Tenor parts are printed in the alto and tenor clefs respectively in the source. A fully written-out keyboard accompaniment in the source, which doubles the voice parts, has been omitted from the present edition. The first verse only of the text is underlaid in the source, although the title indicates 'Psalm 32 Verses 1, 7 and 11': further verses have been added editorially in accordance with this. Notes printed in the source as small grace-notes have been expanded editorially.
