Nunc Dimittis

For those on the old calendar, have a blessed feast. For today, the second of February on the Church calendar, is the Meeting of Our Lord, also called Candlemas in the West.

Here is a beautiful rendition of the Prayer of Saint Simeon by the choir of the Moscow Sretensky Monastery.

I do not know the setting, but it is lovely. Perhaps my favorite musical piece is Rachmaninov’s version, which I have posted before: “The Prayer of Saint Simeon.” What inspiration! I venture that Cecilia, Notkar Balbulus, John Koukouzelis, and Hildegard must really enjoy Sergei Vasilievich’s company.
