A quiet and reflective setting for SAB of an epic traditional Christmas season text.  Many great settings of O Magnum have been written, which all tend toward an ethereal focus.  1996 marks my 10th year as a composer, and 4th year as an organist and choir director.  I dared not try to match the spirit of the great settings, Victoria, et al, and instead write music to be sung to the Baby.


O magnum mysterium,

et admirabile sacramentum,

ut animalia viderent Dominum natum,

iacentem in praesepio!

O beata virgo, cuius viscera

meruerunt portare

Dominum Iesum Christum.


O Magnum Mysterium (1996)
