With its use of modality, striking false relations and parallel harmonies, this setting of the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis has great tonal and harmonic interest throughout. The exciting syncoptaed rhythms and metrical changes of the lively Magnificat are effectively contrasted by the mysterious and more harmonically exotic nature of the Nunc Dimittis.

Also known as 'The Gloucester Service', Adrian Partington, Director of Music at Gloucester Cathedral, has confirmed that the work is now part of the choir's regular repertoire.

Magnificat & Nunc Dimittis was premiered on 25 November 2012 at Christ Church Cathedral, Montreal.
