    I have sung many of the composer's songs through the years. She has been publishing for about 50 years. I find her music beautiful, touching, and melodic. I have sung her music as solos, duets, quartets, and SATB. Although most of her music that I have sung and used...

    is sacred, her composing has branched into many genres. One of her great passions was to promote women in the arts. She had a weekly radio show to expose her audience to many female composers, singers, instrumentalists, etc. It was a great radio production and is missed, as is she. Jeanne E. Shaffer, the composer of Magnificat, Op. 184, died on April 9, 2007. I bought this piece for my choir because there will be no more compositions written by her, because I love her music, and because she was my Mother.
