PERFORMANCE NOTE In the Magnificat, tenors and basses should create an almost insubstantial haze; the sopranos and altos must have the courage to sing louder and more positively than the accompaniment. In the Nunc Dimittis, the roles are reversed.

This work was given its first performance during the festival new music wells 72–12 on the Feast of Pentecost, Sunday 27 May 2012, sung by the Choir of Wells Cathedral, conducted by Matthew Owens. The work was generously supported by the following people, through the Cathedral Commissions scheme: Mr Iain and Prebendary Helen Ball Best Western Swan Hotel Mr Geoffrey W.F. Clarke Dr and Mrs Paul Darragh Miss Lucy Deakin A confirmation gift for Tim from Adrian, Mary, Mum and Dad (May 2012) Mr Andrew Drysdale Lawrie Graham, in support of his former chorister colleagues and friends in Wells Cathedral Choir
 Mr Peter Harle Mr Michael & Mrs Cathy Hay and family Mr and Mrs Peter Kingston in thanksgiving for the experience Tim, Nicola, Robert, and Suzy enjoyed as choristers at Wells Cathedral Mr and Mrs Nigel C. Lloyd Mr Iain MacLeod-Jones Mr Cameron Marshall Mr D.W. McAlister Mr John Moxon Mr J.D. Owens, in loving memory of Brenda Owens (1940–2010) Miss Catherine Sekwalor Dr C.S. Villiers
 Revd David T.R. Wilcox
 Colette Winfield

Jonathan Dove studied composition with Robin Holloway at Cambridge and worked as a freelance repetiteur, animateur and arranger. His first major projects came via Glyndebourne, including his breakthrough commission, the opera Flight, for Glyndebourne Touring Opera. Other operatic works include The Adventures of Pinocchio, Swanhunter, children’s opera The Hackney Chronicles, When She Died – examining the response to the death of Diana, Princess of Wales – and Man on the Moon. Works for orchestra include the trombone concerto Stargazer, and Moonlight Revels for trumpet and saxophone. Dove was presented with the Ivor Novello Award for Classical Music in 2008, and in 2010 A Song of Joys opened the Last Night of the Proms.

Jonathan Dove studierte bei Robin Holloway an der Universität Cambridge Komposition und arbeitete als freischaffender Korrepetitor und Arrangeur. Erste größere Werke entstanden in Zusammenarbeit mit dem englischen Glyndebourne Festival, darunter die Oper Flight – ein Auftragswerk der Glyndebourne Touring Opera, das ihm zum Durchbruch verhalf. Sein Opernschaffen umfasst außerdem The Adventures of Pinocchio, Swanhunter, die Kinderoper The Hackney Chronicles, When She Died – das die Reaktionen auf den Tod von Prinzessin Diana beleuchtet – sowie Man on the Moon. Zu seinen Orchesterwerken zählen das Posaunenkonzert Stargazer sowie Moonlight Revels für Trompete und Saxofon. 2008 erhielt Dove den Ivor Novello Award für klassische Musik, und 2010 bildete A Song of Joys den Auftakt zur „Last Night of the Proms“.
