This charming, canzonet-style motet was arranged by the young Brahms for his Hamburg women's choir in the late 1850's. The strophic text is based on the account in Luke 1 of Mary's visitation to Elizabeth. Both text and music convey the cousins' joy at seeing one another; the refrain paraphrases the Magnificat. This piece was a favorite of the Hamberg women's choir, performed many times as its members, also, gathered to sing joyfully. Liturgical use: Advent; Feast of the Visitation, May 31. SSAA (much Alto I divisi) a cappella. German/English. 8 pages, plus singing and literal transations and editorial notes. duration: 2:30 min.; range: f to a"; difficulty: easy-medium.
