For the Feast of the Holy Family, O Magnum Mysterium from “Carols from Kings”, Christmas Eve 2009, performed by Kings College Choir:
Close your eyes and enjoy the rich harmonies.
O magnum mysterium,
et admirabile sacramentum,
ut animalia viderent Dominum natum,
jacentem in praesepio!
Beata Virgo, cujus viscera meruerunt
portare Dominum Christum.Alleluia.
O great mystery,
and wonderful sacrament,
that animals should see the new-born Lord,
lying in a manger!
Blessed is the Virgin
whose womb was worthy to bear
Christ the Lord.
