“Mirabile Mysterium” by Jacobus Gallus

A commentary on this week’s music by Dr. James T. Gerber, Music Associate

Mirabile mysterium declaratur hodie,
innovantur naturae;
Deus homo factus est;
id quod fuit, permansit,
et quod non erat, assumpsit,
non commixtionem passus neque
divisionem.

English Translation:

A wondrous mystery is declared today,
an innovation is made upon nature;
God is made man;
that which he was, he remains,
and that which he was not, he takes on,
suffering neither commixture nor
division.
