Magnificat

RIG045.1
Add to cart
  • Description
Taken from the 1648 set of Mass and Psalm settings, this Magnificat features a solo group of two sopranos and bass, two violins, and a ripieno group of soprano, alto, tenor and bass. It is a fine piece and deserves a place in the regular repertoire, lacking any of the more demanding virtuosity of many settings from the period.
