- Edition notes: New edition with title page, libretto (Latin and German), and facsimiles of the part books on pp. 22-24 — In the pitch of the printing 1568 (chiavette with high clefs), basing on the edition of A. Stenberg (CPDL #20495) — Slight differences in the setting of the text — Corrections to CPDL #20495: Altus: Treble clef (not octave treble clef) — No replenishment at the end of Prima, Secunda, Tertia, and Quarta Pars (because the altus part is shorter than the discantus, tenor, and bassus part) — Tenor : Quarta pars, bar 31: the crotchet is "f" not "d".

- Edition notes: Transposed edition of CPDL #46143 – a fourth down, what is not according to the rules of transposing chiavettes with high clefs, but it looks much better than the correct transposition a third down = A flat (CPDL #46145).
