Motet for Christmas Day from Tomus Primus Operis Musici, Prague, 1586.
Lyrics: Latin Antiphon

Hodie Christus natus est: hodie Salvator apparuit:
Hodie in terra canunt angeli, laetantur archangeli:
Hodie exsultant justi, dicentes:
Gloria in excelsis Deo. Alleluia.

Christ is born today: today the saviour appeared:
The angels sing on earth today, archangels rejoice.
Today the righteous rejoice, saying:
"Glory be to God on high. Alleluia".
