Canticle of Mary


This lists any discs, concerts or collections where this piece is included.




I acclaim the greatness of the Lord,
I delight in God my Savior,
who regarded my humble state.
Truly from this day on all ages will call me blest.
For God, wonderful in power,
has used that strength for me.
Holy the name of the Lord!
whose mercy embraces the faithful,
(Magnificat, anima mea Dominum.)
one generation to the next.

The mighty arm of God
scatters the proud in their conceit,
pulls tyrants from their thrones,
and raises up the humble.
The Lord fills the starving
and lets the rich go hungry.

God rescues lowly Israel,
recalling the promise of mercy,
the promise made to our ancestors,
and to Abraham’s heirs forever.
