‘Nunc Dimittis’


A version of the Nunc Dimittis, written from my purely secular position. A friend had requested a setting of these words for some time and eventually, after some initial reluctance this is my attempt. It is intended to be sung by an unaccompanied Mixed Choir, without the conventional organ interludes, possibly as a concert performance.

This recording is from an informal performance given by the Bristol based amateur group Tapestry some time ago after just a short rehearsal and for which I am grateful. This group has sadly now disbanded and I would be happy to supply a score and parts to a choir willing to have a new look at these settings

A setting of the Magnificat is also available.
