Antiphon for Second Vespers at Corpus Christi

Morales sets the antiphon to the Magnificat for Second Vespers of Corpus Christi. In typically free counterpoint with variable imitation he proceeds to weave a tapestry of interlocked phrases. He takes his time. The rising fourths, 'O sacrum', stamp character and devotion on a work that seems one of organic growth.
