This communion antiphon is sung here as it would have been sung in Venice during a Marian Mass, that is a Mass offered within the framework of a liturgy set out for a Marian feast day. The chant in this case is taken from the Commune Festorum B. Mariae Virginis which set out the liturgically appropriate texts for the various Marian feasts. Enjoy :-)
Beatam me dicent – Antiphona ad communionem
|Beatam me dicent omnes generationes |
Quia fecit mihi magna qui potens est:
|All generations shall call me blessed |
For he that is mighty hath magnified me:
|Magnificat anima mea Dominum. |
Et exsultavit spiritus meus in Deo salutari meo.
|My soul doth magnify the Lord: |
and my spirit rejoiceth in God my Saviour.
