John Rutter: Magnificat (Vocal Score)

Books | Soprano or Mezzo-Soprano Solo, SATB, Piano (Organ) Accompaniment

Composer: John Rutter
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work
A setting by John Rutter of this traditional, sacred text for Full Mixed Choir and Soprano solo, with a Piano reduction included of the Orchetra or Chamber ensemble arrangement.

The Magnificat - the canticle of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Luke I: 46-55) - traditionally formed part of the ancient service of Vespers in the medieval Roman rite. It has been set to music more often than any liturgical text, other than the Mass itself.

Rutter’s inspiration and motivation for this arrangement was the Mediterranean sunshine and the many exuberant festivals that are held throughout Europe to honour the Virgin Mary. The work is full of energetic, syncopated rhythms and strong melodies which evoke a celebratory and rejoiceful character.
