  Ask a Question


Traditional harmonies, extended chords and open intervals in parallel motion evoke both the ancient and modern in this lovely setting of a Medieval plainchant.

“Of the Father’s Love Begotten” is a Christmas carol that pairs a text based on the Latin poem “Corde natus ex parentis” by the Roman poet Aurelius Prudentius with a medieval plainchant melody, “Divinum mysterium” (Divine Mystery), from the 1582 Finnish song book Piae Cantiones. The text is a rich theological statement that speaks of the Son of God’s eternal nature, of creation, the fall of mankind into sin, the prophecies of a coming Messiah, the virgin birth and the incarnation of God, and salvation in Christ, concluding with stanzas of praise to God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
