Edition notes: The order of staves in the source is Tenor - [Alto] - Air - [Bass], with the alto part printed in the treble clef an octave above sounding pitch. Only the first verse of text is given in the source: the subsequent verses have here been added editorially. The last note is printed in the source as a minim in all parts, followed directly by a repeat mark: a crotchet rest has here been added editorially to accommodate the repeat back to part-way through bar 6.
