  • I don't have any answers but I am looking for the same thing. Were you able to find something? I am having a very difficult time.

    Does anyone have the official text they could post? I might be able to work on it. I haven't worked very much with Spanish, but I could give it a shot.
  • This is the official Spanish text of the Magnificat:

    Proclama mi alma la grandeza del Señor,
    se alegra mi espíritu en Dios, mi salvador;
    porque ha mirado la humillación de su esclava.
    Desde ahora me felicitarán todas las generaciones
    porque el Poderoso ha hecho obras grandes por mí:
    Su nombre es santo,
    y Su misericordia llega a sus fieles
    de generación en generación.
    Él hace proezas con su brazo:
    dispersa a los soberbios de corazón,
    derriba del trono a los poderosos
    y enaltece a los humildes,
    a los hambrientos los colma de bienes
    y a los ricos los despide vacíos.
    Auxilia a Israel su pueblo
    acordándose de la misericordia
    ―como lo había prometido a nuestros padres―
    en favor de Abraham y su descendencia por siempre.
    Gloria al Padre, y al Hijo, y al Espíritu Santo,
    Como era en el principio, ahora y siempre,
    por los siglos de los siglos. Amén
    (Lucas I, 46-55)

  • You may want to take a look at the Magnificat of Fr. Domingo Cols, OP. He created excellent music for monastic chant in Catalan and Spanish.

    You have one of his Magnificat versions, for instance in this Google book:
    (Proper for the Dominican Order)

    Go to page 35 for instance.
