The original choral setting of O Magnum Mysterium, premiered by the Los Angeles Master Chorale conducted by Paul Salamunovich in December, 1994, has since been performed thousands of times throughout the world and was also designated as an American Choral Masterpiece by the National Endowment for the Arts. The genesis of this motet is discussed in my Wall Street Journal article. “Zurbaran's 'Still-life with Lemons, Oranges and a Rose.'”

    I performed this piece in a high school choir, and like few others do I recollect its beauty. Its execution, when performed in a setting appropriate for sacred choral music by a seasoned choir, is simply glorious. It is quite frankly a masterpiece.

    When I first heard this song, I almost cried. It is very beautiful. I liken it to Stopford's Ave Verum or Ames' In Remembrance. All fantastic.

  • October 26, 2011 Wonderful piece!

    This piece has a wonderful sound world, which is especially effective in venues with great acoustics. It terms of the actual notes, the piece isn't too hard. The difficulty, as with any slow piece, is maintaining the tone and intensity of the piece. Magnum Mysterium is a well known...

    and is sure to be a crowd pleaser! Although there is no IMAGE of this piece, one will be provided if you contact sheetmusicplus.com. The quality of the music is excellent, although the pages are not stapled together so it is possible for the inside pages to fall out. EXCELLENT delivery - the item took 6 days from purchase to arrive here in the UK. Sheetmusicplus.com continue to provide fantastic service.
