Christmas Meditation

Sunday the 15th we went to church and listened to Erik Westbergs Vokalensemble celebrating their 20th anniversary with a Christmas concert. Among other things we got to listen to the first performance of composer Jan Sandström´s "Veni, Emmanuel", which was a real treat.

But now, a few days later, as I think back, my favourite piece was Morten Lauridsen´s "O Magnum Mysterium". I found a version of it on youtube (put there by GP Eleria) by the Nordic Chamber Choir, and here it is.


  1. Just getting caught up on all your December posts. I am listening to the Laudridsen--which I did not know--as I am sitting in the darkened living room in front of the lit Christmas tree. One cat is snoring beside me on the sofa and the other is huddled down under the tree. A lovely moment!
