Canzon septimi toni a 8, C171
composer
1597; No 2 of Sacrae Symphoniae

Introduction
A symmetrical canzona in three sections, each of which ends with a tripla and a brief, duple-time tutti with the basses moving in sonorous canon. The first and second sections are started by choir one, the third by choir two. The almost carol-like opening tune is answered by choir two playing a more robust, leaping motif, and this discussion of contrasting themes is a feature of the whole canzona.
