    Just 18 hours ago, a video of my "Nunc dimittis" (in English) was premiered on YouTube, sung by Ensemble Nobiles (Leipzig) as part of the evening service in the Stiftskirche Stuttgart on 19 February 2021 - the same concert that resulted in an earlier video of my Psalm 51 for Ash Wednesday.

    A couple of notes about the composition: The music for "as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be" is an mirror reflection (exact musical inversion) of the music that opens the piece. And the concluding music for "world without end. Amen" is a musical quotation from the conclusion of my "This Advent Moon" - and that music itself is a mirror reflection of the opening phrase of that piece! The ATBB score is attached.
