Francesco Durante's Magnificat in B flat major is one of his most important works and also one of the most siginifcant settings of the Magnficat text, here in cantata form. This work displays a mastery of the polyhonic style and though the use of certain pre-classical, "modern" elements its various forms never sound archaic, rather the work presents a synthesis leading to a unique style. For a performance during the Christmas season, Christmas hymns can be inserted between each of the individual movements. Six arrangements of such hymns are also available as octavos (Carus 10.270/06): - Johann Cruger: Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland - Cornelius Freundt: Wie schon singt uns der Engel Schar - Johann Sebastian Bach: Uns ist ein Kindlein heut geborn - Erhard Bodenschatz: Joseph, lieder Joseph mein - Johann Cruger: Frohlich soll mein Herze springen - Gregor Joseph Werner: Der Tag, der ist so freudenreich The string parts for these movements are included in the complete orchestral parts Carus 10.270/19.
