Edition notes: The original order of parts is 2nd - 1st - [Instrumental bass] in the opening instrumental 'symphony', and Tenor - [Alto] - Treble - [Bass] - [Instrumental bass] thereafter. The alto voice part is given in the treble clef an octave above sounding pitch in the source. Symphonies after the first one are given on the voice parts, with the second treble-range instrumental part (given here on the alto stave) printed on the tenor stave at the same pitch as given in this edition (i.e. these have not been transposed by an octave in transcription). The first verse of the text is underlaid in the source, with the subsequent verses given here printed after the music. The first word of the second line of verse 3, given here as 'with', is printed as 'which' in the source.
