Description: Edition prepared from "Harmonia coelestis or The Harmony of Heaven imitated", London, 1780. That source recommends use by S.S.B. or by T.T.B. This piece has not been traced to a primary source. It should be remembered that this version is probably simplified for use in country parishes, and not in a cathedral foundation, where the treatment would have been more elaborate.
