O Magnum Mysterium
By Frederick Frahm. Setting of a classic Latin text from the Matins for Christmas. This setting is for treble and bass voices with organ. A splendid option for Christmas Eve or a service of Christmas Lessons and Carols.
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
our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
