Edition notes: Transcribed from Friedrich Blume (ed.): „Gesamtausgabe der musikalischen Werke / von Michael Praetorius“ (Wolfenbüttel: Kallmeyer, 1937, page 192)

Minor differences: – In [Blume 1937] the second voice is soprano, I set it as tenor. – In [Blume 1937] voice #1, bar #33 there’s the last note with a dot. I omited the dot, because this seems to be an error (9/4 won’t fit in 4/2…)
