Edition notes: Original order of staves is Counter - Tenor - Treble - Bass: the counter part is notated in the source in the treble clef, an octave above sounding pitch. The vocal bass part is figured in the source: this figuring has been omitted from the present edition. 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 40 Verses 1 5 6 7/8' in the source. Notes printed as small grace notes in the source have been editorially written out in full.
