Tomás Luis de Victoria's O Magnum Mysterium Sung by The Sixteen, Directed by Harry Christophers

Sung at Saint Michaels of Rochester for today's Feast of the Epiphany:
    O magnum mysterium,
    et admirabile sacramentum,
    ut animalia viderent
    Dominum natum,
    jacentem in præsepio!
    Beata Virgo, cujus viscera
    meruerunt portare
    Dominum Christum.
    O great mystery,
    and wonderful sacrament,
    that animals should see
    the new-born Lord,
    lying in their manger!
    Blessed is the Virgin whose womb
    was worthy to bear
    Christ the Lord.
