The canticles will be Gabriel Jackson’s Truro Service. This is a very modern piece, written in 2001. In fact, Jackson celebrated his 50th birthday in July this year. He is currently associate composer to the BBC Singers.

Jackson was a chorister at Canterbury Cathedral, he then studied composition at the Royal College of Music.

Over 60 pieces of his work have been recorded by choirs worldwide. He was commissioned to write a carol for The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols at King’s College in 2009 – The Christ Child. Also a piece for the 2010 BBC Proms – In Nomine Domini.

He is currently writing a piece for the 40th anniversary of the Tallis Singers.

There’s a lovely interview with Gabriel Jackson on the Classical Source website. http://www.classicalsource.com/db_control/db_features.php?id=10409

The audio is St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral Choir, directed by Matthew Owens, perform the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis evening canticles from Gabriel Jackson’s Truro Service. Treble and bass solos by Oliver Boyd and Ben Carter, respectively.
