Music for Michaelmas

(New icon is a detail of this.)


Revelation 8:1, 12:7-8

Factum est silentium in caelo,
Dum committeret bellum draco,
Cum Michaele archangelo.
Audita est vox milia milium dicentium.
Salus, honor et virtus omnipotenti Deo.
Alleluia.

There was silence in heaven
When the dragon fought
with the Archangel Michael.
The voice of a thousand thousand was heard saying:
Salvation, honor, and power be to almighty God.
Alleluia.
Indexing: ,
You're welcome! I got to hear it twice live, the second time actually during evensong for the feast of Michael and All Angels, which was particularly striking.
