Based on a traditional Alentejo carol from southern Portugal, this music of the Magnificat is gentle, soothing, and almost hynotic. Each verse is treated differently, giving the solo voice and all the others an opportunity to sing the melody. May be performed in Portuguese or the singable English translation. An optional instrumental accompaniment is available separately scored for two tenor recorders, strings, and harpischord. Duration: 4:35. 


Customer Reviews

"A 1st prize competition winner, this work is probably the most performed a cappella piece in Portugal for the last 10 years. It's one of the most beautiful Portuguese folk melodies and it is masterly crafted by Carrapatoso. Gorgeous mixolydian flavour, nice shift of range between male and female parts including beautiful short solos that can be performed by a good amateur choir. My first performance of this work was an unforgettable discovering experience for me and my singers. I highly recommend it!!!! Thumbs up!!!"
