Edington Service

composer
2005; commissioned for the 50th Edington Festival of Music within the Liturgy in 2005
author of text
Magnificat: Luke 1: 46-55; Nunc dimittis: Luke 2: 29-32

 
Bingham’s Edington Service—her second setting of the Magnificat and Nunc dimittis, made for the fiftieth Edington Festival of Music within the Liturgy in 2005—involves an imaginative leap back to the first Christian congregations. The composer chose the Latin text for her Edington Service as a vehicle to return to the distant past. ‘The Magnificat only has an organ pedal accompaniment, a repeated rhythmic motif’, she observes. ‘I wanted to make both movements sound arcane, as if evoking worshippers of two thousand years ago. The Nunc dimittis seems to be wafting down the airways from a long time ago.’
