Three books of Vivanco’s music were published in his lifetime and this Magnificat is taken from his first publication, the Liber Magnificarum of 1607. It contains 18 Magnificat settings (two on each of the eight tones plus a third Primi and Octavi Toni setting) and is counted among some the finest Iberian polyphony of the Renaissance era. Vivanco frequently provides two alternate settings of the Gloria Patri/Sicut erat in the Liber Magnificarum to be used as desired. Typically, the first setting is more functional whilst the second is more contrapuntally ambitious and employs a larger ensemble. Both versions are given here, with the second 8-voice setting preferred in this edition. Here Vivanco writes a double canon between the Altus and Tenor whilst Tenor III (rescored for Baritone here) sings Superius II’s paraphrase of the tone 7 plainchant in retrograde.
