Motet for Christmas Day from Sacrarum Cantionum (book 1), Milan, 1608.
Lyrics: Latin Antiphon

Quem vidistis, pastores? Dicite, annunciate nobis, in terris quis apparuit?
Hodie illuxit nobis dies redemptiones nostrae,
hodie nobis de caelo pax vera descendit.
Dicite quidnam vidistis et annunciate Christi nativitatem.
Hodie nobis de caelo melliflui facti sunt caeli.
Dicite quidnam vidistis et annunciate Christi nativitatem.
Natum vidimus et choros angelorum collaudantes Dominum.

Whom did you see, shepherds? Speak and tell us: who has appeared on earth?
Today, the day of our redemption hath shone upon us;
Today, true peace hath descended upon us from heaven.
Tell us what you have seen, and announce Christ's nativity.
Today for us drom above, the skies are created the heavens.
Tell us what you have seen, and announce Christ's nativity.
We saw the new-born and choirs of angels praising the Lord.
