The Magnificat and Nunc Dimmitis come to life in two memorable Biblical scenes: (1) Young Mary, visiting her older cousin, Elizabeth, sings of her great joy to be the mother of the Christ Child. (2) Mary and Joseph taking the infant Jesus to the temple where the wise, aging Simeon declared that God's promise to him was fulfilled. These settings can be sung as general anthems or as integral parts of Vespers or Evensongs. The flute ostinato and the introductory choral measures are motifs from Magnificat by J. S. Bach. Magnificat text based on Luke 1:46-47. Nunc Dimmitis text based on Luke 2:29-31. Lectionary use: Luke 1: 46-47 - Visitation ABC; Advent 3 AB; Advent 4 BC; Luke 2: 29-31 - Christmas 1 B.
