Description

SATB Choir and Organ. A setting of the Magnificat and Nunc dimittis. Not just for Evensong, but whenever the two lessons might come up: Advent Four, Epiphany, the Presentation, etc. This is a lovely and accessible work just right for your Evening Service. And, as a bonus, Robert Powell composed these Preces and Responses to accompany this setting.
Written for Brad Gee and St. James Episcopal Church in Hendersonville, NC.

My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hat rejoiced in God my Saviour.
For he hath regarded the lowliness of his handmaiden.
For behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
For he that is mighty hath magnified me and them that fear him throughout all generations.
He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
He hath put down the mighty from their seat, and hath exalted the humble and meek.
He hath filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he hath sent empty away.
He remembering his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel, as he promised to our forefathers, Abraham and his seed forever.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word.
For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, which thou hast prepared before the face of all people,
To be a light to lighten the Gentiles and to be the glory of thy people Israel.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
