Canticle of Peace
Words from Canticle of Simeon, Luke 2:29--32 / arr. John Purifoy
SATB Choral Octavo
Called the Canticle of Simeon, these enduring words from the Gospel of Luke have been adapted and sensitively set. John Purifoy is at his best with this moving and earnest prayer song, which also incorporates a touch of Latin with an eloquent effect.
