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.
"All the worldís a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts."
As You Like It.

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."
