Title: Nunc dimittis (primi toni) "Il magnanimo Pietro"
Composer: Orlando di Lasso
Description: Lassus took as the model for this setting of the Nunc dimittis the first movement Il magnanimo Pietro of his madrigal cycle Lagrime di San Pietro. Although unattributed in the source, it appears alongside a number of other works by Lassus and there is little doubt that it is his work. It is followed in the source by a similarly-voiced setting of the Eastertide antiphon Regina caeli, so it may too be intended for use at Easter.
