Evening Canticles

  1. Magnificat
  2. Nunc Dimittis

A setting of the canticles from the office of Evensong for SSATB and Organ.

The Magnificat is a mix of youthful vigour and awe, while the Nunc Dimittis, on the other hand, is more an essay in controlled ecstasy. In the two pieces, an independent organ part explores the many different colours of the instrument while providing a secure foundation for the choral lines.
