- Edition notes: No closing repeat mark is given in the source at bar 9, but there is a $ sign at the beginning of the piece and a double bar line after bar 9: a closing repeat mark has been added editorially as the next indication of repetition is a $ sign at bar 30, which is matched by a first and second time bar at bar 42.
- While empty staves have been omitted from the present edition in bars 10-25 and 44-48, the source has all four staves given throughout these sections, making the voice indications which have been added to the present edition unnecessary in that layout.
- The counter part is notated in the alto clef in the source. MusicXML source file is in compressed .mxl format.
