Magnificats & Nunc Dimittis’

£12.00

Magnificat & Nunc Dimittis was recorded to explore the breadth of imagination with which composers have
approached the texts, which have been sung in Christian worship for over 1000 years. Stanford’s starting
point was the Germanic symphonic tradition; Howells took his inspiration from the architecture and acoustics of the Cathedral in Gloucester; Tippett was inspired by the unique Spanish trumpet stop at St John’s.

The Evening Cantincles chosen for this record relate to a particular period of music making in the life of St John’s conductor, Andrew Nethsingha; his time at the Royal College of Music; at Truro and Gloucester Cathedrals, and lastly his time at St John’s.

Founded in the 1670s, The Choir of St John’s College, Cambridge, is one of the finest collegiate choirs in the
world – known and loved by millions for its rich, warm and distinctive sound, expressive interpretations and
ability to sing in a variety of styles.
