O Magnum Mysterium
Text is a responsorial chant from the Matins of Christmas Day
Music by Morten Lauridsen (1994)

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

Performed by the Westminster (London) Cathedral Choir
