Edition notes: The problem of different versions resulted mostly in minor changes (shorter or longer rests, or a change of a note). Major changes were applied to the third choir in bars 99 - 112. A probably better contemporary solution is offered by Richard Charteris (1996), but to my understanding, this is copyrighted until 2021.
