Publisher: Parish Publications
This is a lively choral setting of the evening canticles - Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis, here scored for SATB and Organ / piano accompaniment by Ian Higginson. The Magnificat and the Gloria are mostly in a 6/8 metre which provides a steady lilt. It has a burst of almost relentless energy, until it reaches a quieter and more reflective middle section before building up to a climax at the return of the 6/8 theme for the equally energetic Gloria.This work is fun to perform, but it does include some tricky corners in both the choral writing and the accompaniment. The Nunc Dimittis has a completely different feel to it - set in simple quadruple time, it has a more gentle and perhaps haunting start, which gradually builds builds up to a climax. The setting of the Gloria is a reprise of the energetic 6/8 Gloria, which comes at the end of the Magnificat.
