<ul><li><p>Hymn: Immaculate Mary, SMH 577 Maria zart, von edler Art Arnolt Schlick (c. 1455~1460 after 1521) Schlick was a German organist, lutenist and composer best known for his treatise on organ building and performance. Maria zart, von edler Art, based on a popular German song of the day, was published as a part of his Tabulaturen etlicher Lobgesang und Lidlein (Mainz, 1512), the first printed organ tablature surviving today. Magnificat, Quarti Toni Jean Titelouze (c. 1562/3 1633) Titelouze was a French composer and organist of the early Baroque period. His hymns and Magnificat settings are among the earliest known published French classic organ collections. The French classic organ music is firmly rooted in the church liturgy. One of the principal genres was the verset, a short composition that was played in place of one phrase (one verse) of plainchant, alternating with verses sung by the choir (alternatim). The Magnificat is a part of the sung Vespers and was performed in alternatim as follows: (Sung verses are in italics. Organ versets in bold.) Antiphon Magnificat anima mea Dominum, et exsultavit spiritus meus in Deo saluatari meo, quia respexit humilitatem ancill su. Ecce enim ex hoc beatam me dicent omnes generationes, quia fecit mihi magna, qui potens est, et sanctum nomen eius, et misericordia eius a progenie in progenies timentibus eum. Fecit potentiam in brachio suo, dispersit superbos mente cordis sui; deposuit potentes de sede et exaltavit humiles; esurientes implevit bonis et divites dimisit inanes. Suscepit Israel puerum suum, recordatus misericordi su, sicut locutus est ad patres nostros, Abraham et semini eius in scula. Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui sancto Sicut erat in principio et nunc, et semper et in scula sculorum. Amen. </p></li><li><p>Hymn: Ave Maria, SMH 441 Magnificat from Les Vpres du Commun des Ftes de la Sainte Vierge, Op. 18 Marcel Dupr (1886 1971) This piece traces its origin to Dupr's organ improvisation at the Vespers on August 15th, 1919, in Notre Dame. Claude Johnson, the managing director of Rolls Royce who happened to be at the Vespers, was greatly impressed with the organist and commissioned him to compose short pieces in the style of the 15 versets for the Office of Assumption. The cycle, comprising 5 Psalm Antiphons, 4 versets based on the hymn Ave Maris Stella and 6 Magnificat versets, was premiered as part of Dupr's London debut in 1920 and established his international reputation as an organist. The Magnificat, though structured in the tradition of French liturgical music, is no longer strictly based on the plainchant, but illustrates the corresponding verses with kaleidoscopic music. 1. Andante con moto. My Soul Doth Magnify the Lord. 2. Maestoso. For Behold from Henceforth All Generations Shall Call Me Blessed. 3. Allegro con moto. And His Mercy Is on Them That Fear Him Throughout All Generations. 4. Allegretto ma non troppo. He Hath Put Down the Mighty from Their Seat. (Cantilena) 5. Misterioso e Adagiosissimo. He Remembring His Mercy Hath Holpen His Servant Israel. 6. Allegro con fuoco. Gloria. (Finale) Hymn: Hail, Holy Queen, SMH 548 </p></li></ul>
