A warm and tender piece that will quickly become a favorite of congregations and music programs of almost any size and makeup—this gentle, restful musical setting combines a paraphrase of the Nunc dimittis with verses from the Book of Psalms. It is easily accessible to choirs and worshiping assemblies and would be a beautiful sung prayer for any occasion from Evening or Night Prayer to moments of lament and grieving. The C instrument part is optional.
