Misc. Comments

  • Originally published by Schott.
  • Though the van Bruwaene typeset attributes the words (possibly) to Joao IV de Portugal, Grove Music cites "more recent researches, notably those of Dom John Stéphan, of Buckfast Abbey, Devon, who in 1947 discussed a newly‐discovered MS of the tune in the handwriting of John Francis Wade , a Lat. teacher and music copyist of Douai (d 1786 ). Stéphan believed this to be the ‘first and original version’, dating from 1740 – 43 , and attrib. both words and mus. to Wade."
Copy at Brussels described by RISM (" S, Coro S, Coro A, Coro T, Coro B, S 1 (S solo), T 1 (A), V 1 (A), V 2 (T 2), V 3 (B), org") has mixed chorus, soprano solo, and several other voice parts? as well as organ. - Schissel
