Magnificat

$2.95

I love the Magnificat, the song of Mary, mother of Jesus. Mary’s words are at once prophetic and revolutionary, calling for justice and equity to the glory of God. It is not for nothing that authoritarian regimes have banned this text, as it calls for a radical reordering of the world. This setting for Treble choir and violin conveys the soaring joy and burning fire behind Mary’s song.

Note: This is a digital score (PDF).

Description

Listen & Peruse

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord
My spirit rejoices in God my Savior
For He has looked with favor
On His lowly servant
From this day all generations will call me blessed
The Almighty has done great things for me
And Holy is His name
He has mercy on those who fear Him
In every generation
He has shown the strength of His arm
He has scattered the proud in their conceit
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones
And has lifted up the lowly
He has filled the hungry with good things
And the rich He has sent away empty
He has come to the help of His servant Israel
For He has remembered His promise of mercy
The promise He made to our fathers
To Abraham and his children forever
Glory to the Father and to the Son
And to the Holy Spirit
As it was in the beginning, is now
And will be forever. Amen.
