O mirandum mysterium

composer
1692; Motetti sacri a voce sola, Op 17, Venice
author of text

 
Legrenzi’s charming Christmas motet O mirandum mysterium has the virtues of clarity, order and sweetness, though its second section is in the lament idiom of contemporary opera, and hints at deeper things.

from notes by Peter Holman © 2001

Le charmant motet de Noël de Legrenzi, O mirandum mysterium dénote des qualités de clarté, d’ordre et de douceur même si sa seconde section est écrite dans le style contemporain de la lamentation et laisse deviner une profondeur de sentiment plus grande.

Français: Isabelle Battioni

Legrenzis reizvolle Weihnachtsmotette O mirandum mysterium besitzt die Tugenden – Klarheit, Ordnung und einen süßen Ton –, auch wenn ihr zweiter Teil im Klageliedstil der zeitgenössischen Oper gehalten ist und Tiefsinnigeres anklingen läßt.
