Frome GB Church Musician
Gorgeous music. One of the harder Evening Services that our choir has sung.
Beautifully crafted, but does require the singers to be confident and independent and able to count as the organ part doesn't double the vocal parts much of the time. Well worth the effort though!

Musicroom Reviews

Rating Review
Customer Rating This is glorious music. The opening of the Magnificat, with its interweaving soprano lines, is breathtakingly delicate. But everyone gets plenty of great lines to sing, and the sum of them is greater than the parts.

Customer Rating Howells completed the Gloucester Service at a time of great personal unrest and could maybe account for the more elegiac nature of this divine canticle setting. Moments of quite trancendental stature are achieved in the delicacy of acoustic writing and the restraint of inevitable climaxes. Most striking is the sumptuous explosion of a treble top 'A' from the meandering tenor entry in the lesser doxologies. This is quite magical music and maybe one of the very great Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis settings.
