Magnificat (2018) (pdf)


My setting of the Magnificat is the fifth time I have set this text, but the first time in Latin and without an organ – it is an entirely different beast from the previous four. The piece is a free meditation on the text rather than a blow-by-blow representation of the section of the Book of Luke, with atmospheric textures, harmonies and effects to the fore.
