Small grace notes printed in the source have been written out in full-sized notes in this edition.
The counter (alto) part from beat 3 of bar 15 to beat 2 of bar 19 in this edition is printed in small notes on the treble stave in the source, and has been separated out editorially: this part may be sung by altos or divisi sopranos.
