Hmmm... I remember to have bought her album "Aeterna" in 1995 or 96 (on the same occasion when I bought Schulze's "The Dome Event" - both were for whatever reason "recommendation of the month" in that little record store that has vanished in the years between - and also Vangelis' "Voices").

But of this three, it was the album I listened to the least (although I thought it was good), and at some point it seems to have vanished from my CD collection. Probably I've borrowed it to some friend, although I have no memory of that. I didn't remember that it was on Hearts of Space (probably because I was otherwise unfamiliar with that label back then...).

I wonder how I would like it today; it had a lot of synthetic choir sounds on it, as far as I remember. Hmm...

Definitely a classic. My second favorite album of hers, with Sacred Space Music being my favorite.

from the label's promo sheet (a promo of the cd kicked in a few days ago):

Musician Constance Demby adds to her remarkable repertoire, the anniversary of her most influential album. “Novus Magnificat: Through the Stargate 30th Anniversary Edition” (to be released on June 9th, 2017 on Hearts of Space Records) marks its influence in the New Age genre. This 2-CD 30th Anniversary Edition features the original recording re-cut by the artist to eleven movements and a second disc of never before released live recordings.

Billed by Constance Demby as "a contemporary Magnificat and Exaltate for digital orchestra and choral voices," Novus is an inspired fusion of influences from traditional sacred and classical music set in a contemporary electronic ambience.

Composed in 1986 and released in 1987, "Novus Magnificat: Through the Stargate" was greeted with immediate critical and popular acclaim. This album of symphonic, sacred music built the bridge between classical and choral music, and what would eventually become the New Age musical genre.

A video for “Spring Equinox” is debuting at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MREQ5IvOAJE&t=358s

“Novus Magnificat: Through the Stargate 30th Anniversary” edition is available from retailers, gift shops, and online music outlets in all physical and digital formats:

Hearts of Space Records Bandcamp: http://bit.ly/NovusMagnificat
