Song of Simeon/Nunc Dimittis (digital copy)
**You are licensed to print only the number of copies you purchase**
Song of Simeon or Nunc Dimittis is a short setting of the prayer recorded in the Gospel of Luke spoken by Simeon upon witnessing the infant Jesus. A simple setting which begins humbly with Simeon's request to be allowed to depart, this work emphasizes the Gloria section with a tempo and dynamic change, meant to celebrate the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit more than anything else. Only moderately adventurous tonally, the added-tone chords can nevertheless present some challenges.
premiered by the University of Louisville Cardinal Singers, Feb 2016 under the direction of Kent Hatteberg
