Today is the first Sunday in Advent.
Arvo Pärt: O Adonai
Zero8 Chorus

From the YouTube page:
Today we continue celebrating advent with one if the Great Advent Antiphons, O Adonai. Much like O Emmanuel, or Veni Emmanuel as many of us know it by, it celebrates the coming of the Lord. This version in German was composed by Arvo Pärt.
Please enjoy!

I nearly forgot to post this today!

O Magnum Mysterium (Lauridsen) — Marianne Beate Kielland, mezzo soprano; Ole Christian Haagenrud, piano

With thanks to Bradley Staubes & Trond Valldal for their beautiful apartment.

O magnum mysterium et admirabile sacramentum, ut animalia
viderent Dominum natum jacentem in praesepio. O beata Virgo,
cuius viscera meruerunt portare Dominum Jesum Christum.
Alleluia.

O great mystery and wonderful sacrament, that beasts should see the new-born Lord lying in a manger. O blessed virgin, whose body was worthy to bear the Lord Jesus Christ. Alleluia
