Motet for Christmas Day from Sacræ Cantiones, Douai, 1586.
Lyrics: Latin Antiphon

Quem vidistis, pastores? Dicite, annuntiate nobis, in terris quis apparuit.
Natum vidimus et choros angelorum collaudantes Dominum.
Dicite, quidnam vidistis et annuntiate nobis Christi nativitatem.
Natum vidimus et choros angelorum collaudantes Dominum.

Whom did you see, shepherds? Speak and tell us: who has appeared on earth?
We saw the new-born and choirs of angels praising the Lord.
Tell us whom you saw and announce to us the birth of Christ.
We saw the new-born and choirs of angels praising the Lord.
