What does early Bruckner sound like? The Magnificat in B flat major casts a completely unexpected light on the young composer, on the threshold of composing his great church works.
Around 5 minutes in length, and in the spirit of Mozart, it was written in 1852 for a service at the Monastery Church of St. Florian. With its concise form and scoring for small forces it offers many opportunities for use. Trumpets and timpani give a festive emphasis to this song of praise to Mary.
Scoring: Soli SATB, Coro SATB, 2 Tr, Timp, 2 Vl, Vc, Cb, Organ
