Motet for Epiphany from Sacrae cantiones, Douai, 1586.
Lyrics: Latin Antiphon

Magi videntes stellam, dixerunt ad invicem:
hoc signum magni regis est.
Eamus et inquiramus et offeramus ei munera:
aurum, thus et myrrham.
Et intrantes domum invenerunt puerum
cum Maria matre eius, et procidentes
adoraverunt eum et apertis thesauris suis
obtulerunt ei munera:
aurum, thus et myrrham.

The magi, seeing the star, said, each in turn:
This is the sign of a great king.
Let us go and look for him and offer him gifts:
gold, frankincense and myrrh.
Then entering the house they found the boy
with his mother Mary, and falling down
they worshipped him and from their opened treasures
gave him gifts:
gold, frankincense and myrrh.
