Tomas Luis de Victoria's version of O Magnum Mysterium was my favorite Christmas song back in the days of high school choir. Here is my own lo-fi rendition.
This is a very unpolished version (forgive the skips and bumps and jumps!) but I had a lot of fun making it! I used GarageBand, my iBook's built-in mic, and a pair of pantyhose for a makeshift soundfilter.
I sang all of the parts as written except the bass, which I sang an octave higher (I tried to sing it low, but I sounded like death. Death is very un-christmasy, by the way.)
Enjoy! Critique, if you care to!
Merry Christmas to all!
