'My soul doth magnify the Lord' usually elicits the most exultant of musical reactions from most noted composers. This one, however, offers a more human response and in a style which touches one's soul in an exceptional manner. Picture this: Mary is 16 and living in ancient Judea.
'This is sublime music! Grabs your attention and takes you on a profound and beautiful spiritual journey in sound. A wonderful project bringing many musicians and singers together to create something extraordinary.'
What the critics say about the disc:
'Large scale, multi-textual multi-layered Magnificat which dazzles with its seductive textures ... dazzling multiple layers, and sense of different time spans happening at once, and its attempt to achieve transcendence.'
Robert Hugill, Planet Hugill
'A highly effective and attractive Magnificat ... [and] a most promising new work.'
