MORTEN LAURIDSEN

o Magnum

Mysterium

for Concert Band


Transcribed by H. Robert Reynolds

Score
Composer Morten Lauridsen is most noted for his seven vocal cycles-Les Chansons des Roses,
Madrigali, Mid-Winter Songs, Cuatro Canciones, A Winter Come, Nocturnes, and Lux Aeterna
and his series of a cappella motets which are regularly performed by distinguished ensembles
and vocal artists throughout the world. His "0 Magnum Mysterium" and "Dirait-on" have become
two of the most performed and recorded compositions of recent years. The Nocturnes have been
recorded by Polyphony, conducted by Stephen Layton, with the composer at the piano, on
"Lauridsen - Nocturnes" (Hyperion). Mr. Lauridsen (b.1943) is Distinguished Professor of
Composition at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music and served as
Composer-in-Residence of the Los Angeles Master Chorale from 1994 to 2001. In 2007, Lauridsen
was awarded the National Medal of Arts for his "radiant choral works combining musical power,
beauty and spiritual depth that have thrilled audiences worldwide."

Morten Lauridsen's choral setting of "0 Magnum Mysterium" ("0 Great Mystery") has become
one of the world's most perfomed and recorded compositions since its 1994 premiere by the
Los Angeles Master Chorale conducted by Paul Salamunovich. About his setting, Morten
Lauridsen writes, "For centuries, composers have been inspired by the beautiful 0 Magnum
Mysterium text with its depiction of the birth of the new-born King amongst the lowly animals
and shepherds. This affirmation of God's grace to the meek and the adoration of the Blessed
Virgin are celebrated in my setting through a quiet song of profound inner joy." H. Robert
Reynolds has arranged the symphonic wind version of this popular work with the approval and
appreciation of the composer.

Currently, H. Robert Reynolds is the Principal Conductor of the Wind Ensemble at the Thornton
School of Music at the University of Southern California. This appointment followed his
retirement, after 26 years, from the School of Music of the University of Michigan where he
served as the Henry F.Thurnau Professor of Music, Director of University Bands and Director of
the Division of Instrumental Studies. In addition to these responsibilities, he has also been, for
over 20 years, the conductor of a professional ensemble, The Detroit Chamber Winds and
Strings, which is made up primarily from members of the Detroit Symphony.

Professor Reynolds is Past President of the College Band Directors' National Association and
the Big Ten Band Directors' Association. He has received the highest national awards from Phi
Mu Alpha, Kappa Kappa Psi, the National Band Association, and the American School Band
Directors' Association, and he was awarded the "Medal of Honor" by the Mid-West Band and
Orchestra Clinic. He received the Citation of Merit from the Alumni Association of the School of
Music at the University of Michigan for his contributions to the many students he has influenced
during his career, and an award from ASCAP for his contributions to contemporary American
music.

Robert Reynolds has conducted numerous premiere performances and has conducted at
Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center (New York), Orchestra Hall (Chicago), Kennedy Center
(Washington, DC), Powell Symphony Hall (St. Louis), and the Academy of Music (Philadelphia),
has been a featured conductor and lecturer at international conferences in Austria, Norway,
Belgium, England, Holland, and Switzerland. He has been a master teacher throughout Europe,
where he has also been a featured conductor and lecturer at international conferences, and has
conducted in many of the major cities of Japan. He has conducted recordings for Koch
International, Pro Arte, Caprice, and Deutsche Grammophon.

o Magnum Mysterium
o magnum mysterium, ogreat mystery,
et admirabile sacramentum and wondrous sacrament,
ut animalia viderent Dominum that animals should see the new
natum, jacentum in praesepio! born Lord, lying in their manger!
Beata Virgo, cujus viscera Blessed is the Virgin whose womb
meruerunt portare was worthy to bear the
Dominum Christum. Alleluia! Lord Jesus Christ. Alleluia!
