Edition notes: A semi-diplomatorical edition, original key and note-values but modern clefs. Ficta are aded sparingly. The odd-verse chant sections are added editoricaly following the variant given in Liber usualis 1961.

An alternative setting to the last "Sicut erat" section

General Information

Title: Magnificat Secundi toni 2. (even verses)
Composer: Francisco Guerrero
Lyricist:

Number of voices: 4vv   Voicing: SATB
Genre: SacredEvening Canticles

Language: Latin
Instruments: A cappella

First published: 1563 in Canticum Beatae Mariae, no. 4
Description: A setting of the even verses where the chant formula of the second tone for Magnificat is used as melodic material throughout the settings. The Fecit potentiam in braccio suo is a SAB trio and the final Sicut Erat in principio is in five parts where the superius secundus and the contratenor parts are a two in one part canon where the contratenor starts one breve later at subdiatessaron (a perfect fourth lower. The orig. print indicates the pitch but not the timing of the canon.) The alternative six-part setting where the tenor and the contratenor secundus form a two in one part canon in diapente (a perfect fifth above) is edited here as a separate document.
