- Edition notes: The alto part is printed in the alto clef in the source. Fragments only of the first verse of the text are underlaid in the source: this has been given in full in the present edition, with four additional verses selected from the text and underlaid editorially. The last G in the alto part in the penultimate bar has no accidental in the source: a natural sign has been added editorially.
