Mozart for Your Sunday: Mass in C Minor KV618: Credo

When prayer is put to music, it is more than ‘hum’ me a few bars and I’ll follow. This is from the “Great Mass in C Minor”

Credo in unum Deum,                                                         I believe in one God,
Patrem omnipotentem,                                                      the Father almighty
factorem coeli et terrae,                                                    maker of heaven and earth,
visibilium omnium et invisibilium.                               and of all things visible and invisible.
Credo et in unum Dominum Jesum Christum,         I believe also in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
Filium Dei unigenitum,                                                       the only begotten Son of God,
et ex Patre natum ante omnia saecula.                        begotten of his Father before all worlds.
Deum de Deo,                                                                         lumen de lumine, God of God, light of light,
Deum verum de Deo vero,                                                very God of very God,
genitum, non factum,                                                          begotten, not made,
consubstantialem Patri,                                                     being of one substance with the Father,
per quem omnia facta sunt,                                              by whom all things were made,
qui propter nos homines                                                    who for us men
et propter nostram salutem                                              and for our salvation
descendit de coelis.                                                              came down from heaven.
