John Rutter’s “Magnificat”
December 16, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
On December 16, 2018 at 10:30am, the Sanctuary Choir and Chamber Orchestra will present John Rutter’s Magnificat. One of the oldest Christian hymns, this canticle proclaims Mary’s message of hope and devotion:
“My soul magnifies the Lord,
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has looked with favor on the lowliness of his servant.
Surely, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
for the Mighty One has done great things for me,
and holy is his name.” (Luke 1:46-49)
John Rutter writes, “The … Magnificat – a poetic outpouring of praise, joy and trust in God, ascribed by Luke to the Virgin Mary on learning that she was to give birth to Christ – has always been one of the most familiar and well-loved of scriptural texts …”
All are invited to come and worship together on this most joyous occasion.
