O Magnum Mysterium is a setting of a Latin sacred text written for Christmas. The text depicts the extraordinary occurring among the ordinary: God coming to earth as a tiny baby, animals in a lowly stable being the first to witness his arrival. Adding dynamic contrast (crescendo/decrescendo) on every phrase and singing legato (smoothly) with a gentle choral tone will reflect the wonder and awe that the original text and this setting attempt to communicate. Original Latin Text: English Translation: O magnum mysterium, O great mystery, Et admirabile sacramentum, And wonderful sacrament, Ut animalia viderunt That animals should see Dominum natum the newborn Lord jacentem in praesepio. Lying in a manger. O magnum mysterium. Amen. O great mystery. Amen. General Latin Pronunciation Guidelines: 1. There are only five pure vowel sounds in Latin: A = AH E=EH I = EE O = AW U = OO 2. Strive to flip all Rs as if singing in Italian. Latin Pronunciation (accented syllables are UPPER CASE): oh MAH-nyoom mee-STEHR-yoom,* eht ahd-mee-RAH-bee-leh sah-krah-MEHN-toom, oot ah-nee-MAH- lee-ah vee-DEHR-oont DAW-mee-noom NAH-toom, yah-CHEHN-tehm een preh-SEH-pee-aw. aw MAH-nyoom mee-STEHR-yoom. AH-mehn. *The word mysterium in this piece is a three-syllable rather than a four-syllable word. This can be accomplished by pronouncing the last syllable ium as yoom rather than ee-oom.

He received a Bachelor of Music Education from the University of North Texas, and is currently pursuing a Masters degree in Music Education at SMU.

    My students loved this piece from the first time they heard it. Accessible to smaller groups, nice voice leading, and good level of difficulty.
