Listening to the music of Mariano Garau one abstracts oneself from the world, one immerses oneself above all in prayer; in this way, one comes into contact with that mysterious, intangible and collective spiritual sphere, felt by every sensitive being.

Precisely for these reasons, in 'O magnum mysterium', a compact and essential piece, the author uses simple but not banal language to describe one of the crucial moments of the Christian liturgy. No unnecessary virtuosity, no contrapuntal distraction to distract contemplation and amazement before the greatest of mysteries: the birth of God from the body of the Virgin Mary. The soft, homorhythmic progression between the voices favours a look of extreme tenderness at the baby.
