MAGNIFICAT – majestically performed by Nidarosdomens Jentekor and the Trondheim Soloists under conductor Anita Brevik – expresses the inner dialogue of Mary after the glorious moment the angel Gabriel tells her she is to be the mother of the son of God. Nominated for Best Surround Sound Album in 2015, the album beautifully harmonizes the themes of joy, humility, devotion, and honor inspired in Mary by the divine news. The 9.1 Auro-3D format is awe-inspiring, encoded here for download in 5.1 FLAC, and captures a truly innovative take on this classic story.
With producer Morten Lindberg, the record label 2L has received a record 28 nominations since 2006, fifteen of which for Best Surround Sound Album alone. Magnificat has been met with an equally resplendent reception, including a Grammy nomination, befitting its masterful production. The artistry from everyone involved, including composers Kim André Arnesen, Aaron Jay Kernis, and Ola Gjeilo, is preserved and reproduced here in 5.1 FLAC.
