Magnfiicat (My soul glorifies the Lord) - Belasco

This setting of the Magnificat was composed by Ken Belasco (details unknown - likely to have been a musician from the Caribbean in the 1960s - 80s).

It uses the text of Luke 1: 46-55 from The Grail translation, and so the lyrics are still copyright.

It is published as a setting for use during Night Prayer in McCrimmon Publication's Celebration Hymnal for Everyone - and this is the only located source of sheet music for it.

The unnamed tune has a 4/4 time signature. In the key of C, the first few notes are G G ec G#G A.

The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on this website. A rough outline is:
My soul glorifies the Lord,
My spirit rejoices in God my Saviour.
He looks on his servant in her nothingness
Henceforth all ages will call me blessed.

1 The almigthy workds marvels for me ...

2 He puts forth his arm in strength ...

3 He fills the starving with good things ...

4 He protects Israel, his servant ...

5 Give glory to the father amighty ...
