Nunc dimittis tertii toni
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
George Malcolm’s harmonization of the third-tone Nunc dimittis is an object lesson in spiritual minimalism. The unadorned chanting of the lower voices is answered by upper voices in simple three-part homophony, the harmony resolving into a quiet unison as Simeon’s soul slips gently into eternal rest.
