My Spirit Rejoices

Performing a selection of Magnificat settings for the beginning of Advent has proven popular with our audiences. This year, to honor the 100th anniversary of the death of Sir Charles Villiers Stanford – the father of Anglican sacred music – his half-dozen most iconic settings of the Magnificat, written for use at services of Choral Evensong, will be presented, along with other Advent-themed works, as a prelude to the Holiday Season. English organist Simon Jacobs joins us for this concert.
