General Information

Title: Nunc dimittis (sexti toni)
Composer: Anonymous
(possibly by Orlando Lassus)

Number of voices: 8vv   Voicing: SSAATTBB
Genre: SacredEvening Canticles

Language: Latin
Instruments: A cappella

 Manuscript 1585 in Bayerische Staatsbibliothek Mus. MS 32, no. 38
Description: In the manuscript source, this setting of the Nunc dimittis is the last of a group of 3 anonymous items for Compline. They are preceded by a group of Mass propers for Candlemas by Lassus and followed by another Nunc dimittis setting, also by Lassus, so this 8-part setting may well also be by Lassus.
