Edition notes: Original key; note values halved. Editorial accidentals and slurs added. This version with organ accompaniment is based on the work as presented in the Byrd Edition XI, which is based on both pre-publication manuscript sources and an organ accompaniment from around 1630; its final "Amen", however, is taken from Songs of sundrie natures, with the organ part altered accordingly. It is therefore not compatible with either edition with viol consort accompaniment.
