Music for Candlemas

February 2 is celebrated each year as both the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple. And Candlemas itself has its origin as a secular festival of light. On this edition of With Heart and Voice, Peter DuBois will explore music for all of these events – including various settings of the Song of Simeon, known as the “Nunc dimittis.”
