Edition notes: The alto part is printed in the alto clef in the source. :The only indication of text in the source is the title 'Ps. 9th' and the opening words 'To Cellebrate &c.': the first four verses of the text have been underlaid editorially. :The alto G on beat 3 of bar 11 does not have a natural in the source, but the tune is printed with a double barline separating beats 2 and 3 of this bar (i.e. separating the third and fourth lines of the tune): furthermore, there are examples elsewhere in Church Harmony of accidentals being repeated where they apply to more than one instance of the same note within a single bar, indicating that the accidentals only apply to the notes they immediately precede. :
