Sebastián de Vivanco: Missa Doctor bonus

The Missa Doctor bonus by Sebastián de Vivanco is based on an unknown model (maybe the plainchant?). The fantastic final Agnus Dei, scored for eight voices, is again a demonstration of the skill of the composer like his Sanctus of the Missa Super octo tonos. These two movements have many points in common, such as the group of voices (both are for SSSAATTB), the presence of two canonic voices and the plainchant in a Cantus firmus ostinato (here in the Altus II).
