- Edition notes: The source uses the alto and tenor clefs for the alto and tenor parts respectively. The vocal and instrumental bass parts are given on a single bass stave in the source, and have been separated out editorially: the title page of the source describes the anthems as 'Interspersed with Symphonies and Thorough Basses, for two Hautboys and a Bassoon'. The closing repeat bar-line after bar 112 is not matched by a $ mark, as used elsewhere in the piece to indicate the start of a repeated section. In the absence of such an indication, the opening repeat bar-line preceding bar 105 has been added editorially: the source has a double bar-line at this point.
Title: O God, the king of glory
