Suscepit Isreal is the third piece of Alberto Grau's Magnificat set.  It can be performed as a separate piece or combined with other pieces from the set.  This setting uses only one verse (Luke 1:54) of the Magnificat text.  Even though all four sections of this piece use the same text, it is expressed in a variety of motivic and rhythmic combinations in the choir and always maintains the lyric character of the words.  The soprano solo - symbolic of a motherly guardian - is set in an ongoing melodic discourse that hovers above the different textures of this intimate piece.
