For this performance, we used strophic settings of sacred Venetian works as a model to set the full text of the Nunc Dimittis to the opening chorus, this performance is the premiere of this arrangement.
Nunc dimittis servum tuum, Domine, secundum verbum tuum in pace:
Quia viderunt oculi mei salutare tuum
Quod parasti ante faciem omnium populorum:
Lumen ad revelationem gentium, et gloriam plebis tuae Israel.
Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace according to thy word.
For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
A light to lighten the Gentiles and the glory of thy people Israel.
