Morten Johannes Lauridsen's O Magnum Mysterium, Sung by Novo Cantare, Directed by Frans van de Loo

A modern American setting of the ancient Christmas Matins hymn sung by Dutch folk, the posting of which is inspired by today's visit to Farm Sanctuary, detailed in the post immediately prior to this one, and also by today's winning of the bronze by the ancestral homeland in the FIFA World Cup.
    O magnum mysterium,
    et admirabile sacramentum,
    ut animalia viderent
    Dominum natum
    jacentem in pr├Žsepio!
    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.
