Nunc dimittis a 15

Chuck

Thanks for your comment. I omitted to mention originally that I had added the text to the bass part. It is debatable whether it was intended to be sung at all - the suggestion that it was is supported by the fact that it fits the words perfectly.

The continuo is never ranked as a "voice" in these works. So the reason why there are only 14 parts is that one of the parts, probably the alto in the 3rd choir, is missing.

Sorry I can't supply xml files. My version of Sibelius won't do it.
