Bruckner's original manuscript is lost. This transcription by Franz Bayer is incorrectly labelled as "Pange linqua". It contains an obvious transcription error on bar 20: the alto score should be E, D and that of the tenor score logically C, D.
In the Bruckner Gesamtausgabe, Band XXI, p. 3, the alto score on bar 20 is indeed put as E, D. The tenor score is corrected (between brackets) as G, G, with as footnote: "Voorlage irrtümlich: B, D".

URTEXT EDITION 
This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in the EU (or 20 years ago in Italy, before 1992 in the former USSR). Hence, the edition is public domain in its country of origin or a government publication. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum 'threshold of originality' to qualify for copyright as an 'adaptation'. They may not be public domain elsewhere. More information about this can be found here.
