Music For The Day

O Magnum Mysterium, by Morten Lauridsen, sung by the choir of Westminster Cathedral at midnight mass, 2009.

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