September 8, 2013 – “Magnificat – The Canticle of Our Lady throughout the Ages”
// September 8th, 2013 // Sacred Liturgy / Sacred Music
Outside of the words of the Mass, few sacred texts have been set to music as often as the Magnificat, the Canticle of Mary. These beautiful words of Our Lady from the Gospel of Saint Luke have inspired composers for hundreds of years, right up to our own time. This program will feature different musical settings of the Magnificat in Latin and in English from different historical eras, all programmed to honor Our Lady on the Feast of her Nativity.
