Samples / Lyrics[edit]

  • First part of song: "Quia fec..."
  • The voice at the end is reciting the Lord's Prayer: '

"Our father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever, amen."

  • [Main musical loop: J.S.Bach's Magnificat ("Aria: Quia fecit mihi magna") - thanks, [dave_from_2001], for identifying this as from the Magnificat.]
  • The full quotation is: "Quia fecit mihi magna qui potens est, et sanctum nomen eius" This is from Luke 1:49 in the Latin vulgate version - rough translation:

"because the One who is powerful has performed great works for me, and His name is holy". [DC]

  • If you look at the context of this verse, you will see the Christmas connection that makes it fit in with the "Whine and Missingtoe" CD that it appears on.
  • Also if one listens between the 1.07 and 2 minute mark one can hear there is a heavily treated vocal which recites the following passage from hymn "Silent Night" [Derek]:

Silent night, holy night,
All is calm, all is bright,
Round yon virgin mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace

The vocal is treated in such a way that makes the lyric hard to decipher, which is also the case with the melody to "Silent Night."
