Edition notes: The alto part is printed in the alto clef in the source. Only the first verse of the text is underlaid in the music: the text of verses 2-4 is printed after the music, but the word-fitting in this edition is editorial. The sharps on the second F in the alto part in bar 14 and the second F in the tenor part in bar 24 are editorial: these notes have no accidentals in the source.
