Listen to the Music!

Magnificat, a recently composed yet traditional-sounding solo, employs the familiar words of its namesake to great effect. Sung by the British soprano Helen Whittington, who is accompanied by Mark Cyphus on organ, this solemn yet powerful performance perfectly captures the grandeur of the text. It is one of twenty Bible-based songs on the album Fear Thou Not, which additionally features the singers Françoise André, Phillida Bannister, Kathryn Hannah, John Lofthouse, Alison Russell-Hayward, Victoria Stanyon, and Michael Solomon Williams. Four songs were composed specially for this CD, which was recorded in the former building of Eleventh Church of Christ Scientist, London. It comes highly recommended, not only for individual listening but also for church services.
