Musical offering for the ninth day of Christmas

In honor of the birthday of American composer Eric Whitacre, here is his “Lux Aurumque,” sung by the National Taiwan University Chorus.

Lux, calida gravisque pura velut aurum,
et canunt angeli molliter modo natum.
Light, warm and heavy as pure gold,
and the angels sing softly to the newborn babe.
