Magnificat secundi toni
Brumel’s Second Tone Magnificat is a through-composed setting, where most would have alternated chant and polyphony. Its compositional style is surprisingly close to that of the twelve-part Mass, except that the chant is stated mainly in the top part in embellished form. Brumel here again relied on rhythmical sequences, at times almost baroque in their vitality, which give an interesting perspective, in four parts, to the astonishing twelve-part music of the Mass.
