Cantus Ensemble launches 2017 composition competition

3:39, 12th April 2017

Cantus Ensemble is asking composers to write a Magnificat in response to Arvo Pärt’s Nunc Dimittis.

The work must be for unaccompanied voices (SATB) and last between three and eight minutes in length. It should complement Pärt’s Nunc Dimittis, as the works will be performed together.

The overall winner will receive £500, an opportunity to hear the choir perform their composition in concert on 8 July, and a professional recording of their work.

The deadline for entries is 26 May 2017. Click here for more information.
