Canticles Project

As a Christian of the Anglican variety, a student of Scripture, and a musician, my passions collide in a project I’ve begun. My goal is to write music for the Canticles, which are responses that are traditionally read after Scripture readings in church. The Church of England has a list of Canticles here. I’ve begun with the Magnificat (Mary’s song, “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,” found in Luke 1:46-55). I’ve begun work on others as well. After I’ve written music for 7 or 8, I’d like to record them properly, if possible, for use in church and personal times of meditation. I’ll post a link to an improper recording of the Magnificat soon.
