Mendelssohn: Magnificat in D. carus music

Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy

Magnificat in D

MWV A 2, 1822


In this early work, written in 1822 when the composer was just 13 years old, we can already recognize his characteristic style. At the same time he makes references to the same work by his lifelong role-model, J. S. Bach. In the first and last movements all the choral parts have to master challenging coloratura passages. This is where the "slow" mode in the app is ideal for practicing. In the second movement the upper voice chorus sings unaccompanied (or accompanied colla parte) and is a challenge in respect of intonation.
