This famous canticle of Mary has been set by many composers through-out the ages. Owen’s setting is designed for accomplished choirs. His melodies and harmonies make the text come to life. Please listen to this marvelous rendition by musica intima.

My soul doth magnify the Lord.
And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
Because he hath regarded the lowliness of His handmaid;
for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
Because he that is mighty,
hath magnified me;
and Holy is His name.
And his mercy is on them that fear Him
throughout all generations.
He hath shown strength with His arm:
he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
He hath put down the mighty from their seat,
and hath exalted the humble and meek.
He hath filled the hungry with good things;
and the rich he hath sent empty away.
He hath filled the hungry with good things;
He remembering His mercy
hath holpen His servant Israel.
As he promised to our forefathers,
Abraham and his seed for ever.
