Text heard on Sample:

Personent hodie
Voces puerulae,
Laudantes iucunde
Qui nobis est natus,
Summo Deo datus,
Et de virgineo
Ventre procreatus.

In mundo nascitur;
Pannis involvitur;
Praesepi ponitur
Stabulo brutorum
Rector supernorum;
Perdidit spolia
Princeps Infernorum.

Magi tres venerunt;
Munera offerunt;
Parvulum inquirunt,
Stellulam sequendo,
Ipsum adorando,
Aurum, thus et myrrham
Ei offerendo.

Omnes clericuli,
Pariter pueri,
Cantent ut angeli:
'Advenisti mundo:
Laudes tibi fundo
Ideo: Gloria
In excelsis Deo'.

On this day youthful voices sing aloud,
joyful praising Him who was born for us,
given by God, born
of a virgin.

Born into the world, wrapped in swaddling clothes,
laid in a manger in an animals' stable,
the Ruler of all, The Prince of Hell is robbed
of his spoils!

Three Magi came and offered their gifts.
They sought the child, following a star,
offering gold, incense and myrrh in

All clerks and choristers sing with angels:
"You have come into the world;
All praise to You; Glory to God
in the Highest!"
