"Alma Redemptoris Mater" Lyrics and Translation

By November 24, 2012

Follow me on:

Palestrina's exquisite Antiphon "Alma Redemptoris Mater" is usually performed during the Catholic church's Advent and Epiphany at Christmastime.   I stumbled upon this work while putting together a new list of Christmas music albums (see the previous blog post), and I'm rather happy I did.  I've been listening to it on repeat for the last hour.  Learn the lyrics and translation of "Alma Redemptoris Mater" as you listen to the piece by following the YouTube link included within the translation.
