Finding Settings of Mary's Song By Women Isn't Easy

Considering that it was Mary's ecstatic, spontaneously improvised song I've been meditating on, it gets to be kind of noticeable that settings by women (with the possible exception of Anonymous) are rare.  Here is a performance of one by the Canadian composer, conductor and teacher Nancy Telfer sung by a truly excellent childrens choir, the Hong Kong Yuen Long D.A.C. Treble Choir. They are very good, their English pronunciation is extremely good for children who, presumably, didn't speak it as their native language. 

For some reason Blogger wouldn't let me put it up so I give you a link to the YouTube.  I dare you to watch it and not smile.
