A setting for Epiphany from Aliquot cantiones, Munich, 1577, offered at original pitch for S.S.S.T. or transposed down a fourth for A.A.A.T. Regnart specified "ad aequales" but, given the ranges used, this is not strictly practicable for all four voices.
Lyrics: Anon

Stella quam viderant magi ab oriente antecedebat eos
donec venirent ad locum ubi puer erat.
Videntes autem eum gavisi sunt gaudio magno.
Alleluia.

The star which the Wise Men saw in the East went before them
until they came to where the Child was.
And when they saw him, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
Alleluia.
