I can't imagine how the initial 'Magnificat' could be played
in any other way than 'a tempo giusto' without breaking it.
It's a collective outburst of joy, leaving little room for
hesitation.

Herreweghe tends to maintain rather strict tempo even for
romantic era orchestral music, maybe that's one reason why
I like his work in general. Rubato (in the broad sense) for
me is something that can be done by a soloist or a string
quartet (within reason - it becomes slimy rather easily).
For a full orchestra plus choir it mostly sounds fake to me.

I once mixed a live broadcast of the Magnificat with the
same conductor, players and singers. There was little to
do during the initial intro - for once we had decent
soundcheck - except for hearing it happen, and I found it
difficult to sit still in my chair :-)
