- Edition notes: The markings of first and second time bars are editorial. The source has music for the introductory symphony, the verse (with the words of the first verse underlaid) and the symphony between verses. The text of the second verse is given beside the music with no indication of whether a concluding symphony should be played after it, but in the preface to the source, Garbett states that 'Although many of the Psalms have symphonies at the end of the verses, it is not intended that they should be played after the last verse, but to close with the voices ad libitum, the regulation of which I leave to the judgment and taste of the performers'.
