Nunc Dimittis – girls’ choir (SSA) harp and organ


A setting of the traditional text “Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace” for treble chorus, harp and organ by David Warin Solomons.

It was originally written for Dublin Christ Church Cathedral Girls Choir in 1997, but there is no recording. This version is therefore an electronic preview.

The harp part was specially edited by Harper Tasche.

Lord, now lettest thou thy servant
depart in peace according to thy word.
For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
Which thou hast prepared before
the face of all people;
To be a light to lighten the Gentiles
and to be the glory of thy people Israel.

Glory be to the Father
and to the Son
and to the Holy Ghost
As it was in the beginning,
Is now, and ever shall be
