Simeon’s speech on the fulfilment of prophecy at the Messiah’s/Jesus’s arrival starts more reflectively, again with a little Latin—this time just the first line of the Nunc dimittis. The music gradually builds up momentum until it echoes the more wild and theatrical Magnificat, ending with the same last celebratory lines.
