Subsequently this tune (as above, without any alteration) appears to "Psalm C. Jubilate Deo, J. H." in Sternhold and Hopkins' edition of the Whole Book of Psalms, London, 1604, and later in Ravenscroft's "Whole Booke of Psalmes, London, 1621;" set for four parts, once on the words of the 100th Psalm, and a second time to harmonies by Ravenscroft, as given below. The melody is assigned to the Tenor, as was usually done at that period.
