Edition notes: Includes a keyboard reduction of the a cappella choral score. Please click on the link for preview/playback/PDF download. Earlier sources (including Tudway) transmitted this and the accompanying Morning Service in A minor (Aeolian mode). Boyce included it in his Cathedral Music in G minor, and the pitch and title appear to have crystallized at that point.
