Sebastián de Vivanco: Missa Tu es vas electionis

Vivanco composed this mass based on the motet Tu es vas electionis (our edition of this motet can be downloaded for free here). It was not included on the 1610 printed edition, but in a manuscript source in Salamanca Cathedral (Choirbook 2, E-SAc LP 2).

The entire mass is scored for four voices, apart from the Agnus Dei that is scored for five voices (SATTB).
