Beata Viscera
Pérotin Lyrics


Beata viscera
Marie virginis
Cuius ad ubera
Rex magni nominis;
Veste sub altera
Vim celans numinis
Dictavit federa
Dei et hominis

O mira novitas
Et novum gaudium,
Matris integrita
Post puerperium.

Populus gentium
Sedens in tenebris
Surgit ad gaudium
Partus tam celebris:
Iudea tedium
Fovet in latebris,
Cor gerens conscium
Delicet funebris,

O mira novitas
Et novum gaudium,
Matris integrita
Post puerperium.

Legis mosayce
Clausa misteria;
Nux virge mystice
Nature nescia;
Aqua de silice,
Columpna previa,
Prolis dominice
Signa sunt propera.

O mira novitas
Et novum gaudium,
Matris integrita
Post puerperium.

Solem, quem librere,
Dum purus otitur
In aura cernere
Visus non patitur,
Cernat a latere
Dum repercutitur,
Alvus puerpere,
Qua totus clauditur.

O mira novitas
Et novum gaudium,
Matris integrita
Post puerperium

Wallace Pearse

Blessed flesh of the Virgin Mary,

at whose breast the king of eminent name,

concealing, under altered guise,

the force of divine nature,

has sealed a pact of God and Man.

O astonishing novelty and unaccustomed joy

of a mother still pure after childbirth.


Vision does not endure to behold in its radiance

the sun, unconcealed, as he rises forth, pure.

Let the wholly enclosed womb of the mother

behold from the side as it is reflected.

O astonishing novelty and unaccustomed joy

of a mother still pure after childbirth.

medieval music is so underrated

A beautiful piece by Perotin. It makes you wonder how many other masterpieces of this period remain undiscovered.

Heard the violins she had a lot to her voice. It was almost like Opera. It had a lot of medieval times.

Opus 32

She's a he.
