Et Ecce


Super Caput Ipsius

Et Septem Lucernae
Super Illud

Et Septem Infusoria Lucernis

Quae Erant
Super Caput Eius

Duae Olivae
Super Illud

Una A Dextris Lampadis
Et Una A Sinistris Eius




Alejandro Martínez

Glorifica mi alma al Señor y mi espíritu se llena de gozo,
al contemplar la bondad de Dios mi Salvador.

Porque ha puesto la mirada en la humilde sierva suya y ved aquí el motivo porque me tendrán por dichosa y feliz todas las generaciones.
Pues ha hecho en mi favor, cosas grandes y maravillosas, él que es Todopoderoso y su nombre infinitamente santo, cuya misericordia se extiende de generación en generación, a todos cuantos le temen.

Extendió el brazo de su poder, y disipo el orgullo de los soberbios, trastornando sus designios.
Desposeyó a los poderosos y elevó a los humildes.

A los necesitados los llenó de bienes y a los ricos los dejó sin cosa alguna.
Exaltó a Israel su siervo, acordándose de él por su gran misericordia y bondad.
Así como lo había prometido a nuestro padre Abraham y a toda su descendencia por los siglos de los siglos.

The Magnificat

The Magnificat is also known as the Canticle of Mary. It is one of the eight most ancient Catholic chants and perhaps the earliest Marian hymn. Its name is the opening word of the Vulgate text (Lk 1: 46:55): Magnificat anima mea, Dominum (My soul doth magnify the Lord). These are the words chanted by Our Lady on the occasion of her Visitation to her cousin St. Elizabeth.
After the Virgin Mary greeted St. Elizabeth, who was carrying the future St. John the Baptist, the child moved in St. Elizabeth's womb. When St. Elizabeth praised the Immaculate Virgin for her faith, Our Lady said the words of what is now known as the Magnificat in response. It is a prayer of praise for the inestimable favor bestowed by God on the Virgin, for the mercies shown to Israel, and for the fulfillment of the promises made to Abraham and to the Patriarchs.
The hymn forms a part of the Daily Office in the Roman Catholic Vespers service. The Magnificat is assigned to Vespers because the world was saved in its eventide by the assent of Mary to the Divine plan of Redemption.

Magníficat ánima mea Dóminum.

Et exultávit spíritus meus: in Deo salutári meo.

Quia respéxit humilitátem ancíllae suae:

Ecce enim ex hoc beátam me dicent omnes generatiónes.

Quia fécit mihi mágna qui pótens est: et sánctum nómen eius.

Et misericórdia eius in progénies et progénies timéntibus eum.

Fécit poténtiam in bráchio suo: dispérsit supérbos mente cordis sui.

Depósuit poténtes de sede: et exaltávit húmiles.

Esuriéntes implévit bonis: et dívites dimísit inánes.

Suscépit Ísrael púerum suum: recordátus misericórdiae suae.

Sicut locútus est ad patres nostros: Ábraham, et sémini eius in saecula.

Glória Patri, et Fílio, et Spirítui Sancto,

Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, et in sæcula sæculórum. Amen.

My soul doth magnify the Lord.

And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior.

Because He hath regarded the humility of His slave:

For behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.

Because He that is mighty hath done great things to me; and holy is His name.

And His mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear Him.

He hath shewed might in His arm: He hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.

He hath put down the mighty from their seat, and hath exalted the humble.

He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich He hath sent empty away.

He hath received Israel His servant, being mindful of His mercy:

As He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed for ever.

Glory be the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, forever and ever, Amen.
