Herbert Howells’ Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis (Collegium Regale), for SATB and Organ accompaniment, is a vibrant sacred work with beautiful voicings and a wonderful effervescence.

This is rich and colourful church music with integrity– he has successfully brought together Tudor church music, and merged it with modern harmony and counterpoint. It is this best-of-both-world’s feature that makes Howell’s version of the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis a pleasing one, and it is dedicated to King's College, Cambridge.

Customer Rating This is one of the nicest settings of the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis I know. The Gloria is very famous and a fitting climax to the piece. There are some tricky harmonies and the soprano/treble part begins quite low but then remains consistently high. Beautiful voicing including solo lines for most parts. Beware though, don't let you tenors and basses overpower the higher parts!
David Barton

Customer Rating What continues to amaze me in the music of Herbert Howells is how such a simple idea is manipulated and transformed to create the most vibrant, reflective and thouroughly engrossing music within the Church music genre. Howells' setting of the evening canticles for King's College, Cambridge, is the most beautiful evocation of the biblical text uplifting the words in the most seemingly effortless mannor with strikingly iridiscent results. How he avoids sentimentalism and the predictablility of his more draconian predecessors is a sheer master-stroke, fusing the worlds of tudor church music with contemporary harmony and counterpoint. This is real church music at its very best; accessible to most whilst still maintaining an unrivaled degree of integrity which is still revered nationwide in churches today.
