Stanford: Magnificat in G — Choir of Salisbury Cathedral

The Choir of Salisbury Cathedral, under the direction of David Halls, perform Irish composer Charles Villiers Stanford‘s setting of the Magnificat in G. Stanford’s G Major settings of the evening canticles are among the most recognisable musical settings of those texts, and the Magnificat in particular, with its effervescent organ part and demanding treble solo, is among the most popular and most recorded staples of the Anglican cathedral music repertoire. 

On this Marian-themed disk from Salisbury Cathedral, Daniel Cook and Simon Jacobs are at the cathedral’s mighty Willis organ, and an unnamed chorister leads the choir through the Mangificat with the piece’s signature treble solo.

[ Text: ]

My soul doth magnify the Lord : and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
For he hath regarded: the lowliness of his handmaiden.
For behold, from henceforth: all generations shall call me blessed.
For he that is mighty hath magnified me : and holy is his Name.
And his mercy is on them that fear him: throughout all generations.

He hath showed strength with his arm: he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
He hath put down the mighty from their seat: and hath exalted the humble and meek.
He hath filled the hungry with good things: and the rich he hath sent empty away.
He remembering his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel: as he promised to our forefathers, Abraham and his seed, for ever.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost
As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be
World without end.
