Edition notes: The alto part is notated in the source in the treble clef, an octave higher than given here. The only indication of the text given in the source is the title 'Psalm ye 48th'. The version to be used is not specified: some tunes in the same book specify that New Version texts are to be used, while no tunes specify the use of Old Version texts (possibly suggesting that if New Version is not specified, Old Version should be used).
