Magnificat & Nunc Dimittis is one of the 20 evening canticles written by Herbert Howells for the choir of St John's College, Cambridge in 1957. This sheet music is arranged for SATB Choir and Organ accompaniment. Herbert Howells was a renowned English composer of church music in the Anglican evensong tradition, best known for his 'Hymnus Paradisi' and as a teacher at the Royal College of Music. His lesser-known evening canticles include this piece: a calm and atmospheric choral song whose divine and soaring melodies have inspired audiences for years. The interplay of the bass/tenor and soprano/alto melodies combined with the powerful organ chords create a stirring and uplifting piece that builds to a glorious climax at its conclusion. The acoustics of Magnificat & Nunc Dimittis in a church or cathedral are second-to-none, and your audience is guaranteed to be left stunned by this little-known masterpiece of choral church music.
