Work Overview

The Magnificat Project was a Millennium project set up to commission women composers. The text of the Magnificat itself has, of course, been set by many composers over the centuries and is regularly sung in church services. It displays a unique combination of the human joy of a young woman who finds that she is nurturing a new life, with the religious fervour of someone who finds she has gained a new insight into the nature of God. It is usually allied in services with the Nunc Dimittis - the song of an old man. This demonstrates a balance of experience within the service.

However, most settings of both texts have traditionally been made by male composers. The Magnificat Project has been designed to redress the balance and allow women's voices to be heard reflected through and around these wonderful texts.
