New York-based Orthodox composer Nicholas Reeves (b. 1981) gives an epic sweep to the words of the “Nunc dimittis” New-Testament Canticle (St. Luke 2:29-32). Flowing chant-like lines set the stage for waves of the “Light” that comes to enlighten the Gentiles. Though clearly a modern-day work in terms of harmony and counterpoint, Reeves’ setting maintains a connection with the sense of awe and mystery that characterizes Eastern Orthodox liturgical music and reflects a traditional embodiment of otherworldly beauty. Suitable for Christmas and general anthem use.less
