View Full Version : Deposuit of Vivaldi's Magnificat.

So for class I have to find out the significance of the Deposuit. I have searched google using multiple different phrases/keywords and have came up with nothing on the significance of it. My teacher told the class to use wikipedia, but my luck there was non existent.

I am not asking you guys to do my homework for me (it is extra credit by the way), but I am wondering if anyone knows off the top of their heads?

Thanks in advance.

This is not a question you look up the answer to. Your teacher probably told you to use wikipedia to get the translation and the sheet music.

The significance of the piece, musically and spiritually (within the context of the Magnificat), is something you will have to figure out and explain for yourself. There is no specific answer you can find. The assignment requires creative thought and clarity of expository writing.

Try figuring out what the whole Magnificat is about and how the Deposuit fits into it.
