Lyrics: Anon

Plaudite nunc organis, et inter veloces articulos tympana puerperæ concrepent.
Concinant lætantes chori, et alternantibus modulis dulcia carmina misceantur.
Audite ergo quemadmodum Maria cantaverit.
Ait enim: Magnificat anima mea Dominum: et exultavit spiritus meus in Deo salutari meo.
Quia respexit humilitatem ancillæ suæ: ecce enim ex hoc beatam me dicent omnes generationes.

Now give praise on instruments, and let the timbrels rattle in rapid beats for a new birth.
Joyful quiristers celebrate in song, and in differing measures add their sweet-sounding songs.
Listen then how Maria celebrates through music.
For she affirms: "My soul doth magnify the Lord: and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
For he hath regarded the lowliness of his handmaiden: for behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed".
