Magnificat – Kim André Arnesen
The MAGNIFICAT is the Virgin Mary’s song of praise to God after one of the Bible’s greatest wonders: the angel Gabriel visiting her with the message that she is to be the mother of God’s son. In his setting, composer Kim André Arnesen expresses the feelings Mary must have felt: wonder, devotion, gratitude, joy, humility, hope, and compassion. God’s selection of an unknown woman living in poverty to be the mother of Jesus is a bottom-up view of the world if ever there was one – and Arnesen sees the Magnificat as offering support and hope for all people struggling against adversity or in need of strength.
We are delighted to feature Elizabeth Caballero as our guest soprano for this performance. Please check her website www.ElizabethCaballero.com for more information.
Under the direction of Harold Dioquino, the chancel choir will be accompanied by a string orchestra and pianist Alan Caves.
