Motet for Christmas Day from Sacrorum concentuum, Venice, 1594.
Lyrics: Latin Antiphon

Hodie Christus natus est: hodie Salvator apparuit: hodie in caelo canunt angeli, laetantur archangeli.
Hodie exultant justi, dicentes: Gloria in excelsis Deo. Alleluia.

Christ is born today: today the saviour appeared: the angels sing in heaven today, archangels rejoice.
Today the righteous rejoice, saying: "Glory be to God on high. Alleluia."
