Talk:Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis (William Byrd)

From ChoralWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a modern contrafactum. The Magnificat comes from the full sections of the verse anthem 'Behold O God the Sad and Heavy Case', and the Nunc Dimittis from 'Hear my Prayer, O God', with some modification. I have updated the description to reflect this. The origins of this adaptation remain unclear; perhaps Nigel Duffin of #25832 might be able to help?
