for SATB unaccompanied
This beautiful and spacious Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis setting of the Canticle of Mary is pure Jackson. Alternating stripped back, plainchant-style sections with homorhythmic passages for full choir, this music possesses an understated emotional intensity. The glorious key changes at the end of both the Magnificat and the Nunc Dimittis are spine-tingling. Appropriate for both Evensong and concert performance, this piece is well within the reach of most choirs.
