Musical-Rhetorical Variations in the Cycle of Magnificat by Landgrave Moritz of Hesse

Anastasia A. Maltseva

Abstract


This article examines the peculiarities of functioning of musical rhetorical figures in the cycle of twelve Latin Magnificats by Landgrave Moritz of Hesse. The author demonstrates the figures associated with both the methods of musical development and with the accentuation of the meaning of certain words. The analysis of the cycle in terms of musical-rhetorical variations makes it possible to come up with a notion of the “musical-rhetorical theme” which concentrates in a generalized manner the supportive points of interpretation in terms of musical rhetorics of the text of a prayer.

Keywords: Magnificat, Moritz of Hesse, Baroque musical rhetoric, musical-rhetorical figures
