  • Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767): Magnificat in C, TVW 9:17
  • J.S. Bach (1685-1750): Magnificat in D, BWV 243

One of the most ancient hymns of the church, the Magnificat or Canticle of Mary has captured the imagination of great composers since medieval times. In our final concert we present Bach’s festive setting of this text, composed during his first season in Leipzig, alongside three other superb settings by his contemporaries.
