The Cambridge Singers
City of London Sinfonia
Patricia Forbes - Soprano
Conducted by John Rutter



John Rutter’s Magnificat for soprano soloist, choir and orchestra was written in 1990, and the première took place in May of that year in Carnegie Hall, New York. The text, based on the prayer ascribed by St Luke to the Virgin Mary on learning that she was to give birth to Christ, is extended by the interpolation of Marian prayers and poems chosen by the composer, to create a celebratory work reminiscent of outdoor processions in honour of the Virgin.
