Lux aurumque

Eric Whitacre (b. 1970)

 

Original Text

Lux,
calida gravisque pura velut aurum
et canunt angeli molliter
modo natum.
     Edward Esch/trans.
    

 

 

English

Light,
warm and heavy as pure gold,
and the angels sing softly
to the new-born baby.

French

Lumière,
chaude et lourde comme de l’or pur,
et les anges chantent doucement
au bébé nouveau-né. 

Translation: Jean-Sébastien Kennedy
