Magnificat

Listen or buy this album:

Composer Oliver Tarney (b.1984) has made a specialism of writing choral music. In his highly effective and attractive Magnificat for chorus, soloists, piano, harp, percussion and strings, Tarney expands the text of the conventional Marian song of praise to include interpolations from apocryphal and Old Testament texts, as well as extracts from the Qur’an’s Book of Maryam. It makes for a satisfying experience, especially when the work is delivered with the conviction of the youthful musicians of the Serafine Chamber Choir and Sinfonia under Manvinder Rattan. Fine soloists too complete the line up in what is a most promising new work.
