Catalogue Note

TEXT

Post-medieval Choirbooks can be hard to date and localise, but this example is of the type used in the Iberian peninsula and in Spanish missions abroad.

Magnificat antiphons, with responsories, versicles, and Psalms, for the year from the Saturday before the first Sunday of Advent, to the 24th Sunday after Pentecost, from ‘Ecce nomen domini …’ to ‘Amen dico vobis …’.
