Magnificat
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Magnificat was commissioned by the Deutscher Musikrat, and composed in 1989 for Christian Grube and the Staats- und Domchor of Berlin. As one of Pärt’s most widely performed choral works, it derives its effect from a gentle eloquence—without actually ‘setting’ the text in a descriptive way—and from the contrast of verse- and tutti-like sections.
