“My soul doth magnify the Lord!” Johann Sebastian Bach contemplates God, and his imagination catches fire: even he never wrote anything more joyous and more richly inspired than his Magnificat. Two famous cantatas and the resplendent Orchestral Suite No. 3 provide the upbeat to this celebration with Ex Cathedra of one of music’s most beautiful minds.
