Altdeutscher Schlachtgesang, Op.12 (Rietz, Julius)
Unidentified translator, English text
Boston: Mendelssohn Club, 1874.
Scantailor and Graphicsmagick used though perhaps inappropriately here (source material in this case not TIFF but JPEGs and result more difficult to read; may upload another version differently-processed and possibly more readable in that case.) Also, part reads "Tenors and Bassi in unison", suggesting - perhaps just an enlargement of forces over a bass-only choir?
