Motet Notes

John Harbison: "O Magnum Mysterium" - I

Composed in 1992 for for the Music School at Rivers, O magnum mysterium I is the first and shorter of two settings by John Harbison. Within the motet’s mood of medieval contemplation and devotion, gently rocking motion and stark stasis play against each other with childlike purity."
