An expansive Christ-tide setting in the Venetian style from Reliquae sacrorum concentuum, Nuremberg, 1615. At original pitch; the bottom part is occasionally very low, but the wide range of the parts precludes transposition of the entire piece.
Lyrics: Latin Antiphon

Hodie Christus natus est: hodie Salvator apparuit: hodie in terra canunt angeli, laetantur archangeli: Hodie exultant justi, dicentes: Gloria in excelsis Deo, et in terra pax, hominibus bonae voluntatis. Alleluia.

Christ is born today: today the saviour appeared: The angels sing on earth today, archangels rejoice. Today the righteous rejoice, saying: "Glory be to God on high, and in earth peace, goodwill to all men. Alleluia".
