Edition notes: The original order of parts is Tenor - [Alto] - Air - [Bass]. The Alto and Tenor parts are printed in the source in the treble clef, an octave above sounding pitch. Only the first verse of the text is given in the source: subsequent verses have been added editorially. The text of the first verse given here is as printed in the source, with 'mountain' rather than the more widespread 'mountains'. The notes given here as pairs of quavers joined with dotted slurs should be sung either as pairs of quavers or as crotchets, as necessary to accommodate the irregularities of the text. In the source, where these notes appear on beats 3 of bars 0, 2, 8, 10, 12, and 16 (i.e where they would be sung as crotchets in the first verse) they are printed as crotchets, except where there is a change of pitch between the two notes (e.g, in the bass part in bar 16), where they appear as slurred pairs of quavers.
