Synopsis

Product Description
Magnificat & Nunc Dimittis was recorded to explore the breadth of imagination with which composers have approached the texts, which have been sung in Christian worship for over 1000 years. Stanfords starting point was the Germanic symphonic tradition; Howells took his inspiration from the architecture and acoustics of the Cathedral in Gloucester; Tippett was inspired by the unique Spanish trumpet stop at St Johns. The Evening Canticles chosen for this record relate to a particular period of music making in the life of St Johns conductor, Andrew Nethsingha; his time at the Royal College of Music; at Truro and Gloucester Cathedrals, and lastly his time at St Johns. Founded in the 1670s, The Choir of St Johns College, Cambridge, is one of the finest collegiate choirs in the world known and loved by millions for its rich, warm and distinctive sound, expressive interpretations and ability to sing in a variety of styles.
