- Edition notes: The original order of parts is 2nd - 1st - [Instrumental bass] in the opening symphony, and Tenor - [Alto] - Treble - [Bass] - [Instrumental bass] thereafter. The alto and tenor voice parts are given in the treble clef an octave above sounding pitch in the source. The concluding symphony is given on the voice parts in the source, with the second treble-range instrumental part printed on the tenor stave. The last bar of the opening symphony, bar 8, is printed with a minim only in the source (i.e. with two beats in this bar). A crotchet rest has been added editorially to make this bar up to three beats. The first verse of the text is underlaid in the source, with three subsequent verses printed after the music: verses 2 and 3 have here been underlaid editorially.
