What is a Libretto?

The word "libretto" is derived from Italian and means "a small book". In reference to music, the libretto is the text used in an extended musical work such as an opera, operetta, masque, oratorio, cantata, or musical. The term "libretto" is also sometimes used to refer to the text of major liturgical works, such as a requiem and sacred cantata, or even the story line of a ballet. 

The Rosary for World Peace master libretto comprises four acts, each of which pertains to a separate orchestral and choral performance.

Aria – Mary

Thine, O Lord,
is Magnificence,
and Power,
and Glory, and Victory:
and to Thee is Praise:
for all that is in Heaven,
and in Earth,
is Thine:
Thine is the Kingdom, O Lord,
and Thou art Above All Princes.
(1 Para 29:11)
