Lux Aurumque (literally, Light and Gold) is based on an English language poem by Edward Esch (Light, warm and heavy as pure gold, and the angels sing softly, to the new-born baby.)translated into Latin by Charles Anthony Silvestri (Lux, calida gravisque pura velut aurum, et canunt angeli moliter, modo natum).
