- O magnum mysterium, set to a text from Christmas Matins, invites us to consider the great mystery of the incarnation of Christ. The words create an atmosphere of awesome wonder as it touches on the wondrous sacrament which animals and humans are there to behold. The music breaks into ecstatic cries of praise for Mary which then subside into prayerful meditation.
