Editor: Ross Jallo (submitted 2017-06-08).   Score information: Letter, 6 pages, 150 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: Original key and note values; editorial slurs and accidentals added. The text setting in the original print is occasionally so perverse that I saw fit to alter it in a few instances. The original print contains an organ reduction, omitted here. The bass part is very low indeed, having a low C(!) at one point.
