Alonso de Tejeda: Ave virgo sanctissima

This is a beautiful double-choir setting (SATB+SATB) of a text that is a variation from the one in Guerrero's Ave virgo sanctissima

Ave virgo sanctissima is contained in our complete edition of the Liber tertius sacrarum cantionum, a previously unpublished collection with 20 motets for six and eight voices by the Spanish composer Alonso de Tejeda (c. 1540-1628), copied in a single source, a choirbook extant in the Zamora Cathedral.
