Three books of Vivanco’s music were published in his lifetime. His first publication was a Book of Magnificats from 1607 containing a complete cycle of 16 Magnificats. As was customary, there are two settings of the eight tones, setting odd and even verses respectively. However, book-ending the cycle are two more ambitious settings of which this is the first (the other being his Octavi Toni setting for 8 voices). Only in the Et misericordia verse does he reduce the richly scored 6-part texture to 4 voices, before expanding and reconfiguring his forces for the final Gloria Patri. This final verse also sees Vivanco demonstrating his contrapuntal skills with three dazzling canons operating simultaneously.
