  • CPDL #26528:        (Sibelius 6)
Editor: Edmund Gooch (submitted 2012-06-18).   Score information: A4, 2 pages, 36 kB   Copyright: Public Domain
Edition notes: The source has the order of staves Tenore - Alto - Canto - Basso, with the alto part printed in the treble clef an octave above sounding pitch, and with additional notes added between the air and bass (doubling the inner parts) to form a keyboard accompaniment. These notes have been omitted from the present edition, as has the figuring of the bass part, and the right hand of the keyboard part has been editorially split into two treble lines in the symphonies. The first verse only of the text is underlaid in the source: two subsequent verses have been added here, as indicated by the heading 'Psalm 113th. Verses 1. 4. 6.'. The original is in the key of D major: this edition has been transposed down by a tone.
