O Adonai

Arvo Pärt's setting (in German) of the Magnificat antiphon for December 18th
Lumen Valo Vocal Ensemble of Helsinki: Aaro Haapaniemi & Kari Turunen, tenor, 
Tomi Koponen, barytone, Juha Suomalainen, bass

O Adonai

O Adonai, et Dux domus Israel, 
qui Moysi in igne flammae rubi apparuisti, 
et ei in Sina legem dedisti: 
veni ad redimendum nos in brachio extento.

O Adonai, and Leader of the house of Israel, 
Who didst appear to Moses in the flame of the burning bush, 
and didst give unto him the Law on Sinai: 
come and with an outstretched arm redeem us.
