Tomás Luis de Victoria's O Magnum Mysterium Sung by the Choir of Kings College, Cambridge

Sung tonight by the Eastman School of Music choir at Saint Michaels of Rochester for the Feast of the Epiphany, reminding us that the Christmas season is not yet over.
    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.
