O Magnum Mysterium
Tomás Luis de Victoria Lyrics


O magnum mysterium,
et admirabile sacramentum,
ut animalia viderent Dominum natum,
jacentem in praesepio!
Beata Virgo, cujus viscera
meruerunt portare
Dominum Christum.
Alleluia.

Alleluia.

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!

This is the kind of music that directly connects me with God.

This is the music that first made me BELIEVE in God! I understand exactly what you mean.

Heavenly. Liturgical music is the greatest glory of European choral culture. I am a classical composer dedicated to church music, and I hope, with my works, to bring people closer to the divine, the beauty, the consolation.

Cada vez soy mas consciente lo que ha sido un privilegio que llegué a conocer a este gran maestro español de polifonía de alto renacimiento como corista durante mi tiempo de gimnasio. De manera impresionante Tomás Luis de Victoria (*Ávila 1548, +27.08.1611 Madrid) conecta las emociones con rigores artísticos hasta una unidad armónica magistral.

The beauty of imitation.

Sublime música de un gran compositor, por desgracia no suficientemente conocido. Si fuera alemán o italiano...

My college choir sang this beautiful piece while on tour in Colorado 40 years ago. I was a music major graduated with a BS in music education.

A phenomenal performance, marred only by the spread "ia" of the tenors' last note.

Me too! And what else should they sing on their last syllable than ia :-)
