Service in D
The Magnificat and Nunc dimittis in D were written in 1906. They have energy, grandeur and an architectural control that give stature to the music. The organ accompaniment is full blooded and rich and much use is made of imitation between voices. The Gloria of the Nunc dimittis has an extended fugal finale leading to a joyful conclusion. Bairstow related how on one occasion the priest conducting the service was so overcome with excitement that for a while he was unable to start the Creed.
