Description Rae Whitney's metrical version of the Nunc Dimittis receives simple yet elegant treatment here at the hands of Austin Lovelace. Two versions are included: one for unison voices and organ, the other for unaccompanied choir, SATB. Use this the week after Christmas or at a service of evening prayer.

Anthem text
Lord God, you now have set your servant free
to go in peace as promised in your word;
my eyes have seen the Savior, Christ the Lord,
prepared by you for all the world to see,
to shine on nations trapped in darkest night,
the glory of your people, and their light.

-Luke 2:29-32, para. Rae E. Whitney. © 1982 Church Pension Fund.
