O Quam Gloriosum est Regnum

Here's Victoria's version of O Quam Gloriosum est Regnum, the antiphon upon Magnificat at Second Vespers of All Saints (November 1). Sung by the vocal ensemble Canticum Novum of Dresden in a live performace at Mitschnitt, Chemnitz in July 2009, it is really lovely:

O quam gloriosum est regnum, in quo cum Christo gaudent omnes Sancti! Amicti stolis albis, sequuntur Agnum, quocumque ierit.

O how glorious is the kingdom in which all the saints rejoice with Christ, clad in robes of white they follow the Lamb wherever He goes.

A blessed Feast of All Saints.
