This setting of the Magnificat evokes the excitement, joy and foreboding of the story of the annunciation, often through the use of a solo organ melody as heard at the start and end of the piece.

The Nunc Dimittis in based upon an inexorable bass line evoking the aged Simeon and his encounter with the long awaited infant Christ.
