Transposed up a minor third: note values halved. Small accidentals are editorial. Small notes are those not in the part-books but in the Durham organ book. Part allocation is taken from each part-book's title.

It is not known which of the Mundy family composed this setting and the morning service which accompanies it; the sources only give the author's name as 'Mr Mundy'. It has been thought to be possibly the work of William Mundy's father, Thomas, or, although more unlikely, William's son John. Although we cannot be certain without new evidence, it is stylistically most in keeping with the work of William Mundy.
