O Magnum Mysterium



Here’s another song we did last night at midnight Mass. When searching for a nice recording available on the internet, I came across this interesting trick at Youtube. They have a decent recording matched with the sheet music. It ought to make it easy for some choir members to practice at home.

Anyway, set your speakers on stun and enjoy.


O Magnum Mysterium

Here’s the English translation (for those that don’t speak Latin) from Wikipedia.

O great mystery,
and wonderful sacrament,
that animals should see the new-born Lord,
lying in a manger!
Blessed is the Virgin whose womb
was worthy to bear
Christ the Lord.
Alleluia!


Merry Christmas everyone.
