In association with Linn Records, Magnificat has undertaken many recording projects, including a series of recordings called ʻThe Golden Ageʼ, which will provide an anthology of European church music of the Golden Age of the 16th and 17th centuries. The first disc comprises motets by Rebelo, Gesualdo, Guerrero, Victoria and Josquin together with Allegriʼs Miserere, and Palestrinaʼs Stabat mater. Also for Linn is a highly acclaimed recording of Victoriaʼs Officium Defunctorum 1605, named a 1997 ʻCriticsʼ Choiceʼ by Gramophone Magazine and chosen by The Rough Guide as one of its ʻ100 Essential Classical CDsʼ. Most recently Magnificat has recorded the first volume of music by the neglected Spanish master, Philippe Rogier, including the Missa Ego sum qui sum and funeral motets.
Magnificatʼs international profile is growing with its discography: the group has toured to the Athens Festival in Greece, to Palma and throughout the United States.
