Attribution of the doxology in Nunc dimittis

When watching this video in Youtube I noticed that its author attributes the doxology following the Nunc dimittis to w:Thomas Roseingrave (Gloria in G minor). Can anyone please confirm this? The two editions here available say nothing about him being the composer, implying that the doxology was also a Purcell's work. Thanks, —Carlos Email.gif 03:29, 14 June 2010

Purcell would most likely have repeated the Gloria to the Magnificat. According to my Grove 1980, a copy in York contains this Gloria and attributes it to 'Mr Roseingrave, junior'. This has been attributed to Ralph Roseingrave (c. 1695-1747) who was Thomas's younger brother. There is a modern edition by Maurice Bevan first published in 1968 which many choirs would use.

Thank you Panda! I'll add a note about this to the works page. —Carlos Email.gif 06:11, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Possible Error?

The designation of "Decani" for the ATB trio at bar 63 seems dubious, as all other ATB sections are Can. with the Dec. verses being high voices only. Acole (talk) 20:18, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
