German Magnificat (Christoph Dalitz, 2007)

A setting in a style reminiscent of Heinrich Schütz. The basso continuo accompaniment is obligatory and should not be ommitted. I would suggest to use only an organ without a doubling bass instrument because the bass part often runs parallel with the bass voice.

I had already written a first version of this piece 1989, but had used at that time the text of the so called "Einheitsübersetzung" which may not be freely distributed. Hence I have now rewritten the piece on the basis of Allioli's translation (early 19th century) and have also taken the opportunity to improve the piece considerably.

In case of interest, I can also provide a printed edition of this work.

This edition only contains a figured bass line. Please drop me an email if you would like to have a written out organ accompaniment, so that I can send it to you.
