The Book of New Canticles I is a collection of five new or recent settings of Canticles.
The Magnificat (the song of Mary) and Nunc Dimittis (the song of Simeon) are the most popular of the Evening Canticle texts. These settings would suit any adventurous choir looking for new repertoire for evensong as well as concerts, and other occasions.
This book includes:
- 5 settings by: Simon Biazeck, Jeremy Filsell, Peter Klatzow, James Lark, and Philip Moore
- Settings that have been composed between 1998 and 2011
- Mixed choir settings with organ accompaniment
- A specially-commissioned setting by James Lark
