Te Splendor et Virtus Patris

Below is the last verse of the Vespers hymn for the feast of the Dedication of the Basilica of St. Michael the Archangel. Sadly, this clip is the only one on Youtube of the hymn in any form (save one vulgar instrumental version). The hymn is really quite haunting and the organist displays an excellent ability to improvise without becoming overbearing, as is the tendency when organists are asked to fill in extra time.
Happy feast to all!
