Saturday Extra: Music for the Feast of the Presentation
Today is the Feast of Jesus' Presentation in the Temple, also known as the Purification of Mary, and also Candlemas.
Here are some images of the presentation with "background music" by Sergei Rachmaninoff - the Nunc dimittis (Song of Simeon) from his Vespers (Opus 37). This recording is by the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir directed by Paul Hillier.
