Magnificat Anima Mea Dominum
My soul doth magnify the Lord
"My soul doth magnify the LORD, and my spirit doth rejoice in God, my saviour."
Reviews from SibeliusMusic.com
- Simply breathtaking
"I was first drawn to this composer's work through his stunning setting of that tricky text, the Stabat Mater - a very fine collection of movements indeed. William Walton once remarked that the Magnificat was an uninteresting text to set (he said the same of most texts in the Anglican liturgy), but I am thrilled to see that Mr Grahame has risen to the challenge and succeeded. The variance within the piece is excellent, and the whole reminds me of a modern version of a late-medieval votive antiphon motet. It is a challenging work to sing - the composer makes severe demands on the performers in order to get his interpretation across. Personally, I was very keen on the repeated sections (eg 'Esurientes implevit bonis'), the low voice sections (eg 'Fecit potentiam') and the high soprano solo for the Gloria, reminding us of the author of the text, just as at the opening - it's a hard solo (as is the high tenor part at the end), but works beautifully. All in all, another superb triumph from this remarkable young composer."
