Edition notes: The instrumental sonorities emphasize conical brass (flugelhorns or cornets preferred). Solo oboe and/or solo muted trumpet may be added to, or substituted for, the tenor voice. Accompaniment instrumentation is two flugelhorns/cornets, three horns, two trombones, two euphoniums, and tuba. As for the text, Grechaninov would likely have used Latin or Russian, but no edition with either of those languages was available. Nor is any ancient manuscript available with the Hebrew or Aramaic that would have been spoken by Simeon himself, so the arranger chose to wed the music with the most ancient available text: the current scholarly edition of the Nestle-Aland Greek text (NA28). In addition to the Greek, this arrangement provides an English text that might be performed instead, or in addition to, the Greek.
