Funny how things happen. Was just reminiscing about the "Nunc Dimittis" as it is sung during Candlemas services versus Compline. So, if you don't mind me adding a little atmosphere to your story:

As sung during Mass: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0SPKS-AyH0

As sung during Compline: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrDTzQtfvwk

And one by Palestrina, because I love Palestrina.  :)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWVIdRfPfmE

Thank you so much.
Beautiful all of them.

Am now thinking that maybe Denis and Thomas would have sung the Nunc Dimittis in plainchant, with Thomas being granted the strength to do so one more time.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

I suppose I should note that for Candlemas the hymn is often referred to as the "Lumen ad revelationem gentium." Though both are the Canticle of Simeon
"Loss and possession, death and life are one, There falls no shadow where there shines no sun."

DerynifanK thank you for bringing this story back to the forefront of our memmorries.

Revanne, again I shed a few tears, and again I grow to appreciate Denise all the more.
FWP, Thank you.
