Mortaro: Magnificat Tirsi io mi parto à Dio

The Magnificat Tirsi io mi parto à Dio (SATB+ATTB+SATB) by Antonio Mortaro (fl. 1587-1610) is a parody Magnificat (like the ones by Lasso based on secular models) probably based on the madrigal Tirsi io mi parto à Dio by Ruggiero Giovanelli (c.1560-1625). It contains the whole Magnificat text (not only odd or even verses).
