Latin.png Latin text

Plaudat nunc organis Maria,
et inter veloces articulos tympana puerperae concrepent.
Concinant laetantes chori,
et alternantibus modulis dulcisona carmina misceantur.
Audite ergo quemadmodum timpanistria nostra cantaverit.
Ait enim: Magnificat anima mea Dominum:
et exsultavit spiritus meus in Deo salutari meo.

English.png English translation

Maria now gives praise on instruments,
and with speedy fingerwork rattles the timbrels for a new birth.
Joyful quiristers celebrate in song,
and in differing measures add their sweet-sounding songs.
Listen then how our timbrellist celebrates through music.
For she affirms: "My soul doth magnify the Lord
And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour".

(trans. Timmi O'Danaos & Donna Ferrentes)
