O Factura Dei

Authored by Janika Vandervelde

This energetic piece about the promise of Incarnation is set for SATB choir, electric bass, and percussion (dumbeck or bongos). The text is by the 12th century abbess Hildegard of Bingen, canonized by Pope Benedict XVI in October 2012:

O factura Dei
que es homo,
in magna santitate edificata es,
quia sancta divinitas in humilitate
celos penetravit.
O quam magna pietas est
quod in limo terre deitas claruit,
et quod angeli Deo ministrantes
Deum in humanitate vident.
