O MAGNUM MYSTERIUM
O Magnum Mysterium, the Walla Walla University Department of Music Christmas concert, took place in the Walla Walla University Church on Friday, December 13, 2013.
Our program centers on the Magnificat, the Song of Mary found in Luke 1:46-55 as set by Jonathan Willcocks. We present the movements individually in order to provide time to dwell in wonder at the various themes mentioned by Mary. “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh…” (1 Timothy 3:16).
We invite you to contemplate the great mysteries of the incarnation through beautiful music that recalls Christ’s first advent and dreams of His second advent—that joyous day to come.
Participants in the Christmas concert include the University Singers and I Cantori, directed by Kraig Scott, with vocal soloists David Jacobus, Kristina Kozakova, and Hannah Myhre; and the Walla Walla University Symphony Orchestra directed by Brandon Beck.
