The kind of detailed comparative examination we have begun here on a modest subset of this corpus would only be feasible on the full collection let alone larger corpora with the aid of computer analysis software tools. Camphuysen gives another 2-part version, this time with a devotional Dutch text, supplied with instrumental divisions for both cantus and bassus by dodland Joseph Butler, a Londoner working in Amsterdam.
