The importance attached to the worship of the Virgin Mary in late-Medieval England is reflected in elaborate treatments of the Magnificat, of which only some 22 intact settings survive. This volume contains six 5-part Magnificats – two anonymous, one each by Fayrfax, Cornysh, Turges and Prentyce – and one 6-part Magnificat Benedicta by Ludford.
