AMAZING Advent Music

Sick of Christmas on the radio yet?  Choosing to try to keep some semblance of a vigil as opposed to rushing into Christmas?

Here is a BEAUTIFUL piece from the Latin Mass for this weekend (2nd Sunday of Advent)  Here is the English translation:

Behold the miracle of the mother of the Lord:
a virgin has conceived though she knows not a man,
Mary, who stands laden with her noble burden;
knowing not that she is a wife,
she rejoices to be a mother.
She has conceived in her chaste womb
one who is beautiful beyond the sons of men,
and blessed for ever,
she has brought forth God and man for us.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost. 


Here is Stile Antico's amazing rendition:


If they only played this on the radio!!!
