Song of Songs 1: 3, adapted to form a Marian Antiphon

This work is a Marian motet adapted from the Song of Songs in which Guerrero symbolically has the second alto ‘drag’ its twin, the top voice, after it—a canon ad tertiam—one and a half bars behind and a third above. Among the effects this creates is the beautiful ‘lift’ at 'carissima in delitiis'. This poetic work is surely a jewel in Guerrero’s crown.
