Nunc dimittis tertii toni

author of text
Luke 2: 29-32

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.

L’harmonisation que George Malcolm fit du Nunc dimittis sur le troisième ton est une démonstration de minimalisme spirituel. À la psalmodie dépouillée des voix inférieures répondent les voix supérieures en une simple homophonie à trois parties, l’harmonie se résolvant en un paisible unisson au moment où l’âme de Siméon glisse doucement dans le repos éternel.

George Malcolms Harmonisierung des Nunc dimittis 3. Tonus ist ein Lehrbeispiel für spirituellen Minimalismus. Der unverzierte Gesang der unteren Stimmen wird von den oberen Stimmen mit einer schlichten dreistimmigen Homophonie beantwortet, wobei die Harmonie sich in ein ruhiges Unisono auflöst, wenn Simeons Seele sanft in die ewige Ruhe hinübergleitet.
