- Edition notes: The voice parts are printed in the source in the same order and with the same clefs as given here, and are marked Treble, Counter, Tenor and Bass: the Bass part is figured (this has been omitted from the present edition). The Counter part has here been notated an octave lower than in the source, with the exception of bar 10, which is given at the same pitch as in the source. The soprano F and alto D crotchets on beat 3 of bar 2 are notated in the source as small crotchets slurred to full-size minims, as is the alto E flat in bar 6. The first verse only of the text is underlaid in the source, with the subsequent verses given here printed after the music: these have been underlaid editorially.
