This short work for unaccompanied male voices sets the hymn for Compline 'Te lucis ante terminum' ('Before the close of day...'). Compline is the last of the daily prayer offices that came into use during the Middle Ages. Prayed in later evening, the service is simple in nature and includes this appropriate antiphon for use with the Nunc Dimittis. The text dates from the 7th century. The music is in three clearly defined sections, the outer two sections being more harmonic, and the middle section more melodic.
