Review quote

By far the most important work before me is Stanford's splendid non-liturgical setting of Magnificat, Op. 164, for unaccompanied double choir, where the Latin text is clothed with vivacious and spirited writing which clearly has its roots in the great motets of Bach and Brahms: indeed, any chamber choir or choral society that is familiar with 'Lobet den Herren' will relish this magnificent work. Intended as a tribute to Parry, the writing throughout is masterly, and it is hoped that this new edition, prepared by John Rutter, will give rise to more frequent performances. * CMQ April 99 * Neglected by many cathedral choirs, this exhilarating work should be given a new lease of life by this splendid new edition. * Organists' Review May 99 *show more

About Sir Charles Villiers Stanford

John Rutter was born in London in 1945 and studied music at Clare College, Cambridge. His compositions embrace choral, orchestral, and instrumental music, and he has edited or co-edited various choral anthologies, including four Carols for Choirs volumes with Sir David Willcocks and the Oxford Choral Classics series. From 1975 to 1979 he was Director of Music at Clare College, and in 1981 he formed his own choir, the Cambridge Singers. He now divides his time between composition and conducting and is sought after as a guest conductor for the world's leading choirs and orchestras.show more
