- Edition notes: The vocal bass part is figured in the source: this figuring has been omitted from the present edition to facilitate the underlaying of the text. The first verse only of the text is given in the source: subsequent verses have been added editorially, on the basis of the title 'Psalm the 31st. 1st 2d 3d & 5th Verses' in the source.
