Magnificat & Nunc dimittis in B minor
(original version)

If you know of a Website from which can freely and lawfully be downloaded a printable Vocal score for this Work, even though it may not be exactly the same as the one used to make the Midi Files below, please let me know the address.

And if you know of a publicly-available, competent performance of this Work, please let me know where that is, too.

This service, composed for Worcester Cathedral, was written in January 1887. This original version was published in 1908 and appears in English Church Music, Volume 2 (OUP). It was considerably revised and expanded in March 1892 by Ivor Atkins, then Organist of Hereford Cathedral, later Blair's successor at Worcester Cathedral. The revised version was published in 1933, after Blair's death, and is the version more frequently heard today. The Files below are for the original version; if you wish to hear the revised, Atkins, one, then you can find it here
