Navigation etc.

Text translated from Klopstock's Selig sind des Himmels Erben. Says arranged by Danks but may mean hymn text arranged to new music by Danks (this use of "arranged" was found in 19th century?...)

Accompaniment provided of unspecified keyboard type - seems to be for rehearsal use only?..., in this work doing nothing independent and having no notes of its own (a reduction of the vocal lines.)
