A motet for Epiphany. Molinaro was born in Genoa and achieved the rank of maestro di capella at that city's cathedral.
Lyrics: Latin Antiphon

Magi videntes stellam
dixerunt ad invicem
hoc signum magni regis est
eamus et inquiramus eum
et offeramus ei munera
aurum thus et myrrham.

The magi, observing the star,
said, each in turn:
"This is the sign of a great king
Let us go and seek him out
and bear him gifts,
gold, frankincense and myrrh."
