- Edition notes: The parts are printed in the source in the order Tenor - Alto - Treble (air) - Bass, with the Alto and Tenor in the the treble clef an octave above sounding pitch: the parts have been given here in their usual order, clef and octave, and figuring of the bass part has been omitted. The part given here on the alto stave for the treble duet (bars 20-24) is printed on the source in the tenor part. The bass F in the concluding bar is printed in the source as the A a third higher. The preface to the source indicates ‘the Introductory Symphony to be played as giving out the Psalms; The concluding Symphonies to be played at the end of every verse, and the Hallelujahs to be sung at the end of Psalm’. The words are only given for the first verse of the psalm and the hallelujah in the source: two further stanzas have been added editorially here.
