Hipoliti: Ave Maria

The manuscript E-V ms. 11 contains twenty motets and psalms from five to eight voices (double choir). It was possibly copied in the last quarter of the 16th century or in the first years of 17th centrury.

This Ave Maria, scored for double choir (SATB+SATB) is attributed in source to Hipoliti (?). I have found no information about this composer. This Ave Maria is similar to other Spanish settings by Francisco Guerrero (1570) or Tomás Luis de Victoria (1572).
