Thomas Ebdon (1738–1811) was a British composer and organist born in Durham. He was a chorister at Durham Cathedral and became the organist there at the age of 35 (1763) after some wrangling between the Chapter and Dean. He died in office. He is most famous for the evening part of his Service in C, and his setting of the Preces and Responses.

Ebdon was for many years a freemason at the Granby lodge in Durham, as well as being a senior member of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Durham, established in 1788. A march by Ebdon, for wind and brass (published by Dale of London in 1792), was composed for the installation in 1788 of William Lambton (1764–97) as the first Provincial Grand Master of Durham.

Originating from the Latin word for "magnify" (although originating in the Greek New Testament), the Magnificat is the name given to the words of Mary in Luke's Gospel, beginning "My soul doth magnify the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior." According to the gospel, Mary, while pregnant with Jesus, visited her cousin Elisabeth, who was at the time pregnant with John the Baptist. In response to Elisabeth's salutation Ave Maria, she spoke the words of the Magnificat.

The Magnificat is the canticle appointed to be sung at Vespers in the Roman Rite; it is the first canticle used at Evening Prayer (called "Evensong" when sung) in Anglican tradition, the second canticle being the Nunc dimittis. The latter canticle is appointed as the proper canticle of Compline in the Roman rite. Composers writing for the Anglican tradition typically treated the Magnficat and Nunc dimittis as a related pair; those writing for use in the Roman Rite typically treated the two independently.

This Magnificat in C Major is based on a manuscript service book (Wimborne Minster chained library, Shelf number "O16", "Wimborne Minster No. 10".), two Alto part books ("P23" and "P26") and two Tenor part books ("P27" and "P28"). All sources undated.

Although this work was composed for Chorus (SATB) I created this arrangement for Woodwind Quartet (Flute, Oboe, Bb Clarinet & Bassoon).
