Epiphany motet from Ecclesiastici Concentus, Venice, 1606.
Lyrics: Matthew, ch. 2, vv. 10,11

Videntes stellam magi gavisi sunt gaudio magno.
Et intrantes domum invenerunt puerum cum Maria matre eius
et procidentes adoraverunt eum: et apertis thesauris suis
obtulerunt Domino aurum thus et myrrham.

When the Magi saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother,
and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures,
they presented unto the Lord gold, and frankincense and myrrh.
