John Rutter Magnificat CD
John Rutter’s Magnificat for soprano soloist, choir, and orchestra was written in 1990 but this version is new for 2017.
The text, based on the prayer ascribed by St Luke to the Virgin Mary on learning that she was to give birth to Christ, is extended by the interpolation of Marian prayers and poems chosen by the composer.
Featuring Patricia Forbes (soprano), the Cambridge Singers and the City of London Sinfonia.
37 minutes running time.
