- Edition notes: The order of parts is Secondo - Primo - [Instrumental bass] in the opening symphony, and Tenor - [Alto] - Treble - [Bass] - [Instrumental bass] thereafter. The second parts of the concluding symphony is given on the Tenor stave in the source, but is given on the Alto stave in the present edition. The first/second time bar at bars 30-31, with the sung note shortened to a dotted minim the first time, has been added editorially to accommodate a repeat part-way through the bar shown by a 'segno' mark in the source - the sung note in the source is given as a semibreve, as shown here for the second time bar. The following notes are printed as small crotchet grace notes without time value in the source, and have been editorially expanded here: bar 4, beat 1, G and E in treble instrumental parts; bar 7, beat 1, F♯ and D in treble instrumental parts; bar 20, beat 2, C♯ in treble voice part. The text of the first verse only is underlaid in the source, with the subsequent verses given here printed after the music: these have been underlaid editorially. The second word of the second line in verse 2 is given in the source as 'folly', and has been editorially emended to 'fully'.
