What if every Mass was beautiful? Listen to VOCES8 sing Latin hymns this Advent. Lux Aeterna is from the Roman Catholic Requiem Mass. In English the lyrics are, “May everlasting light shine upon them, O Lord, with thy saints in eternity, for thou art merciful. Grant them eternal rest, O Lord, and may everlasting light shine upon them.” Jubilate Deo is from Psalm 99. It’s the offertory for Epiphany. In English the lyrics are, “O be joyful in the Lord all ye lands, serve the Lord with gladness and come before his presence in song. For he is God.”
