Magnificat Antiphon for First Vespers on Marian Feasts

A third Marian motet, Sancta Maria, succurre miseris, forms one of four linked settings, one each by the three great Spanish composers (Francisco Guerrero and Tomás Luis de Victoria being the other two), based originally on an earlier setting by Philippe Verdelot. Not only did Morales draw heavily on Verdelot’s melodic material in this setting, but Guerrero’s is related to Morales’s, and Victoria’s to all three.

Un troisième motet marial, Sancta Maria, succurre miseris appartient à une série de quatre œuvres connexes, signées des trois grands compositeurs espagnols (Morales, Francisco Guerrero et Tomás Luis de Victoria) et fondées sur une version antérieure de Philippe Verdelot: Morales, le premier, emprunta beaucoup au matériau mélodique de Verdelot, avant d’inspirer à son tour Guerrero, puis Victoria, qui puisa chez tous trois.

Eine dritte marianische Motette, Sancta Maria, succurre miseris, ist eine von vier verknüpften Vertonungen, jeweils eine der drei großen spanischen Komponisten (die anderen beiden sind Francisco Guerrero und Tomás Luis de Victoria), die auf einer früheren von Philippe Verdelot basierten. Morales bezieht sich vielfach auf Verdelots melodisches Material, Guerreros Satz ist mit Morales’ verwandt und Victorias mit allen drei.
