Evensong: Nunc Dimittis


The Canticle of Simeon
 Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:
For mine eyes have seen thy salvation.

This is the stuff that runs counter to all modern horrors. We should shut up and take it to heart.

I'm glad that you enjoyed it, mr bb - I had hoped you would. Gregorian chant is the plainest of music - no fireworks or showing off - and hypnotically induces a sense of calm. I have some photos of lush early summer in Orkney,for you, as promised, which I will blog soon.
