    TO BE A LIGHT
    EVENING CANTICLES FOR UPPER VOICES

    Ely Cathedral Girls’ Choir
    Sarah MacDonald conductor
    Alexander Berry organist

    The Magnificat and Nunc dimittis (affectionately known as the “Mag
    and Nunc”) are said and sung daily throughout the world during
    services in most Christian denominations. In the Anglican tradition,
    they are specifically paired in the service of Evening Prayer.

    This CD features settings from the 19th and 20th century stalwarts
    Harris, Howells, and Rose, as well as newer settings written within
    the last 20 years with several first recordings.

    ‘...the quality and blend of the sound of the girls, [is] uniform in both
    the strongest and most delicate moments, and in particular in the
    highest registers... Secondly, the musical sense of the shape and style
    in the phrasing in music which ranges from carefully articulated and
    idiomatic nuances... to the flexibilities required to cope with the
    longer and broader phrases of the Parry and Ireland.’
