Nunc Dimittis in B Flat free pdf for SSATBB unaccompanied This setting of the Nunc Dimittis was written for Westminster Cathedral and first performed at Compline on Easter Day 1916. In concerts it could be contrasted with the Latin settings by Howells and Holst, and in services it could partner Stanford's eight-part Magnificat. It would also be appropriate for Candelmas celebrations.

About Charles Wood

Born in Ireland, Charles Wood was a treble chorister in the choir of the nearby St. Patrick's Cathedral where he received his early education. Later he studied composition at the Royal College of Music in London with Stanford and Parry. He went to Cambridge as student, organ scholar, then Fellow, becoming the first Director of Music and Organist. As a composer he is chiefly remembered for his Anglican church music, usually in a late romantic harmonic style. All Wood's a cappella music demonstrates fastidious craftsmanship and a supreme mastery of the genre, and he is no less resourceful in his accompanied choral works which sometimes include unison sections and have stirring organ accompaniments, conveying a satisfying warmth and richness of emotional expression appropriate to his carefully chosen texts. Wood co-edited three books of carols, wrote eight string quartets, and was co-founder of the Irish Folk Song Society. His pupils included Ralph Vaughan Williams and Herbert Howells.
