"If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music.

I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music. I get the most joy in life out of music."

~ Albert Einstein

Of the Father's Love Begotten

A beautiful hymn based on a Latin hymn written by 4th century Roman poet Marcus Aurelius Prudentius,. The work was translated in to English by John Mason Neal and Henry Williams Baker and set to the music of the plainsong chant, “Divinum mysterium.” A well-known hymn for Advent and Christmas, the piece can be found on page 82 of the 1982 Episcopal Hymnal.
