Nunc Dimittis (2011)

“Schultz has entered the mind of the virgin, imagining her changing emotions, even a touch of trepidation, ending in a restrained shout of triumph that she of all women has been chosen for this mystical honour. His Magnificat is a beautiful piece, beautifully sung. It would sit well beside the Bach setting in live performance.

The modern professor recalls his classical training with an equally engaging Nunc Dimittis, wherein a lengthy passage of imitation based on the ordinary but always special tonic chord takes the ear on a safe journey to the hereafter with a happy landing.” [Elizabeth Silsbury, “Foundations,” The Music Trust, 1 February 2016.]
