Johann Caspar Aiblinger was born in Wasserburg am Inn, Germany in 1779. His early musical training was received at the Benedictine Abbey in Tegernsee. He spent most of his adult life in Munich, holding a variety of posts, including Kapellmeister at the Italian Opera and the court church in that city, where he composed a large number of Masses and small scale church works. Aiblinger passed away in Munich in 1867.
MAGNIFICAT is the last movement in a collection entitled “14 Psalmi breves” (14 Short Psalms), written for SATB choir and strings. This edition is based upon a hand copied score located in the Sächsische Landesbibliothek‐Staats‐und Universitätsbibliothek, Mus.4528‐D‐2,1. The score is laid out over seven pages, two systems per page, eight staves per system.
The present edition adheres closely to the above mentioned source, noting editorial markings in parentheses. Voice parts, where notated in moveable clefs, were rewritten in treble clef; phrase markings in the voice parts were added where two or more notes occurred for a single syllable of text; textual underlay, given generally only in the soprano part, was added to the alto, tenor and bass parts.
