Year of composition
Like the great mystery of the birth of Jesus, the “O Magnum Mysterium” becomes enigmatic, especially in an introduction where we do not know in which key we will set. After a first part of the work where the minor key is imposed, the major key appears to attenuate the mystery and show the sweetness of Mary, like the vastness of the birth of Christ. The final Allelluia symbolizes the joy of Christians by the birth of Jesus and also contrasts with the beginning of the work, being a tone above the initial tonality, producing a glowing effect and reinforcing this joy and happiness.
