The idea of setting the words of the Magnificat to an elaborate ‘falsobordone’ emerged from the practice at Westminster Cathedral of singing the Magnificat to simple falsobordone settings, except that I attempted to incorporate the outline of the psalm tone in an inner voice (Tenor 2 in Magnificat 1) thus emulating a Renaissance cantus firmus structure. The setting constitutes a half-way house between a chant rendition and a through-composed composition, and similar to an alternatim chant/polyhony Magnificat familiar in the Renaissance, though much shorter. Practically speaking most of the settings here were designed for maximum musical effect with minimum complexity.
