I did think I did see all Heaven before me and the great God Himself

Handel is reported to have said that upon composing, Messiah. It came to me again today, as I was listening to this piece of music:

Lauridsen's O Magnum Mysterium

I simply cannot describe the beauty of this piece.

Glad you enjoyed this so much, Kamilla. It's one of my favorite a capella sacred works ever. Spectacular stuff.

It's also one of my favorites; and it's wonderful to sing!
