Description

for women's voices (SSA) and piano duet (four hands) or chamber orchestra An unusually joyous setting in which straightforward vocal lines portray Mary's humility, and the accompaniment expresses exuberance and freedom of spirit. This is a strikingly original setting of the Canticle for concert rather than liturgical use. The orchestral accompaniment is available on hire.show more
