Magnificat: Songs of Reflection
- (University of British Columbia Singers)
- Format: CD
Commissioned by the Vancouver Chamber Choir for the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games, Magnificat, for soprano solo, SATB chorus and string orchestra is a 24 minute piece in eight movements. Through it's marriage of multilingual texts and contrasting musical idioms, the work expresses not only strongly held religious convictions but also hope for universal peace and harmony within our global community. To complement the spiritual nature of Magnificat, the subsequent tracks of this collection are 'songs of reflection' for either accompanied or unaccompanied SATB chorus.
