Epiphany motet. Hoyoul has inverted the first phrase of the standard text (veniunt magi ab oriente), but otherwise the setting is as usual.
Lyrics: Anon

Ab oriente venerunt magi
Ierosolimam quærentes et dicentes:
Ubi est qui natus est Rex Iudæorum
cuius stellam vidimus?
Et venimus adorare Dominum.

The wise men came from the East
searching for Jerusalem and saying:
Where is he that is born King of the Jews,
whose star we have seen?
And we have come to worship the Lord.
