Mary is visiting her cousin Elizabeth when both are pregnant. Mary with Jesus, Elizabeth with John the Baptist. They know of the significance of their children and, full of anticipation, Mary starts singing the Magnificat, her praise of God.
In Johann Sebastian Bach's setting, this praise can also be felt musically: the glory of God. From festive joyfulness in the cantata to the more quiet tones of the arias in the middle, the whole range of Mary's devotion is found here.

All further sacred vocal works by Johann Sebastian Bach are available in practical editions from Breitkopf & Hartel.
