Communion Anthem O nata lux Morten Lauridsen (b. 1943)
O nata lux de lumine,
Jesu redemptor saeculi,
dignare clemens supplicum
laudes preces que sumere.
Qui carne quondam contegi
dignatus es pro perditis,
Nos membra confer effici,
tui beati corporis.
O born light of light,
Jesus, redeemer of the world,
mercifully deem worth and accept
the praises and prayers of your supplicants.
Thou who once deigned to be clothed in flesh
for the sake of the lost ones,
Grant us to be made members
of your blessed body.
Morten Lauridsen was composer-in-residence of the Los Angeles Master Chorale (1994–2001) and has been a professor of composition at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music for more than 40 years. In 2007 he received the National Medal of Arts from the President in a White House ceremony, “for his composition of radiant choral works combining musical beauty, power and spiritual depth that have thrilled audiences worldwide.” O nata lux, a text for the Feast of the Transfiguration, is certainly no exception.
