Dumont, Ave Gemma Virginum Dumont Horizontal
This antiphon intended to be sung before the Magnificat on the Feast of St. Margaret of Antioch (July 20) is based on a text which is curious since it is modified from the medieval antiphon normally sung on the Feast of St. Catherine of Alexandria (November 25), simply by changing all the Catherines to Margarets. This setting comes from Dumont's Cantica Sacra (1652).
