Amy Beach Canticles pairs the Nunc Dimittis, one of Amy Beachs earliest published works of 1891, with a newly-composed Magnificat by Olivia Sparkhall. The adaptation of phrases from Beachs Nunc Dimittis, combined with portions of Tone VIII, provides a partner which is sympathetic to Beachs style. The straight-forward SATB a cappella setting makes it ideal for a weekday evensong, or for a choir of modest forces. A keyboard reduction is provided for rehearsal purposes, or to provide light support in the service if needed.
