Ensemble: SATB organ
A warm and sympathetic setting of the Song of Simeon, this piece, in its versions for SATB, SAB, SAA and unison choir, allows for the variety of voices found within every church today. The rising motif with its falling counter, found in the organ part, gives the music a unifying simplicity. Aimed to be used as the opening motet at Candlemas, or for a contrast at sung evensong.
This is piece is available in several versions, so please make sure you're ordering the right one! This is the SATB version.
