      Stonking setting of Magnificat and Nunc dimittis. Impressive-sounding and rewarding to perform but not actually that tricky, partly due to amount of unison and doubling-up. Does need a good organist to bring it off.

      Leighton's early attempt at the evening canticles resulted in this exhuberant little gem, which demonstrates as much his skill at contrapuntal writing as it does his ability to 'word-paint'. Full of the characteristic twists and turns in speed, tempi and mood that one comes to expect from this British composer, the only thing that prohibits this piece obtaining a '5 star' accolade is in my opinion, its relative complexity.
