The setting of the evening canticles known as The Second Service, Op 62, was commissioned by the Cathedral OrganistsÔÇÖ Association and bears the dedication ÔÇÿIn Memorian Brian RunnettÔÇÖ. Runnett was the talented Organist and Master of the Choristers at Norwich Cathedral and part-time lecturer at the University of East Anglia who was tragically killed in a car accident. The Magnificat opens with carefully constructed note clusters in compound time which support and answer the treble voices. Repeated rhythmic figures develop in the organ accompaniment which in turn give way to further rhythmic interest. The opening mood returns in the ÔÇÿGloriaÔÇÖ and the music comes to rest quietly but inevitably on a chord of C sharp major. The vocal parts of the Nunc dimittis begin in a mood reminiscent of the final movement of Crucifixus pro nobis. As in the Magnificat, the opening mood of the Nunc dimittis is re-established in the ÔÇÿGloriaÔÇÖ. The dissonances in the final ÔÇÿAmenÔÇÖ yield a chord of F major and the canticles end as gently as they began. from notes by William McVicker ┬® 1992
