Edition notes: The source gives the parts in the order Tenor - Alto - Treble - Bass (labelled as such in the first piece in the book). The treble and bass parts are bracketed together, with small notes between them to fill in the harmony of a keyboard part doubling the voices. This accompaniment has been omitted from the present edition. Only the first verse of the text is underlaid in the source. Three subsequent verses have been added editorially.
