She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Mount Holyoke College, a Master of Music in Choral Conducting from Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey, and a Doctor of Musical Arts in Choral Music from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. Recordings were made by Karen Fraser (fraser@hendrix.edu), Hendrix Information Technology Department. The Web design was created by Patricia Gray, ACS Music Technology Consultant.

MAGNIFICAT


Magnificat anima mea Dominum.
Et exsultavit spiritus meus in Deo salutari meo.

Quia respexit humilitatem ancillae suae; ecce enim ex hoc beatam me dicent omnes generationes
Quia fecit mihi magna qui potens est, et sanctum nomen ejus.

Et misericordia ejus a progenie in progenies timentibus eum.
Fecit potentiam in brachio suo, dispersit superbos mente cordis sui.

Deposuit potentes de sede et exaltavit humiles.
Esurientes implevit bonis et divites dimisit inanes.

Suscepit Israel puerum suum recordatus misericordiae suae.
Sicut locutus est ad Patres nostros, Abraham et semini ejus in saecula.
Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto! Sicut erat in principio et nunc et semper
et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.
