Herbert Howells: Magnificat And Nunc Dimittis - St Paul's

Books | SATB, Organ Accompaniment

Catalogue No: NOV294855
Composer: Herbert Howells
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work
Herbert Howells composed his Magnificat And Nunc Dimittis evening canticles for St Paul's Cathedral in 1951, going on to become among his most famous and enduring works. These beautiful canticles were composed by a master of setting the Anglican liturgy, and are arranged for SATB Chorus and Organ Accompaniment. 

These two wonderful works of choral music are characterised by a unique blend of unison harmonies and disparate melodies that highlight each voice perfectly. The lingering notes, crescendos and subtle dynamic changes were composed with the acoustics of that great cathedral in mind, but they also work equally well in any setting.
