Juan Esquivel: Magnificat Primi toni [odd verses]

The Missarum tomus secundus (1613) by Juan Esquivel de Barahona (c. 1560-c. 1623) contains a series of 16 Magnificats, 8 for First Vespers (odd verses) and 8 for Second Vespers (even verses), one per each tone.

The Magnificat Primi toni (SSAATB) is the first Magnificat of the Primis Vesperis. There is a canon In secunda in the Gloria Patri between the two Altos.
