PALESTRINA : O MAGNUM MYSTERIUM [MUSIC FOR CHRISTMAS TIME]

Το εξάφωνο μοτέτο του αναγεννησιακού δασκάλου Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, βασισμένο στον ύμνο από τη λειτουργία των Χριστουγέννων. Σε απαράμιλλη εκτέλεση από τη χορωδία του Καθεδρικού του Westminster, υπό τον Martin Baker.

The six-part motet by the renaissance master
Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, based on the responsorial chant from Christmas liturgy.
In a sublime performance by the Westminster Cathedral Choir, directed by
Martin Baker.

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

O great mystery,
and wonderful sacrament,
that animals should see the newborn Lord,
lying in a manger!
Blessed is the virgin whose womb
was worthy to bear
the Lord, Jesus Christ.
Alleluia!
