Song of Simeon - Andersen

This hymn by Australian Fr Frank Andersen was originally released on his Kindly Light CD, and published in the accompanying music book which was released by Spectrum Publications of Richmond, Victoria in 1992 (ref).   The collection was re-released on CD in 2003 (ref).

The book and CD are both out of print, and no on-line versions have been located.

Hymns called "The Song of Simeon" are usually a translation of the Latin hymn Nunc dimittis, which is based on Luke 2:29-32.   However I have not been able to check to what extent this version follows the pattern.
