McDowall, Cecilia: O Oriens

O Oriens (2012)

O Oriens, splendor lucis æternæ, et sol justitiæ:
veni, et illumina sedentes in tenebris, et umbra mortis.

O Morning Star, splendour of light eternal and sun of righteousness:
Come and enlighten those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death.

Words: Advent antiphon
Music: Cecilia McDowall (b. 1951)
