Then two days later, the Choir will be on stage again on Christmas Eve. A small ensemble will sing at the early (4:30) service with the full choir singing “Ave Verum Corpus” by Mozart at the later service (7:00). This piece is in Latin. The translation is:
Hail, true body born of the Virgin Mary,
Who truly suffered, sacrificed on the Cross for man,
Whose pierced side overflowed with water and blood,
Be for us a foretaste in the test of death.
