Exclamation

Christmas tree  Merry Christmas! To celebrate Christ’s birthday today, here is a setting of the Latin text, Hodie Christus natus est (Today Christ is born) by Healy Willan.

Hodie Christus natus est (Today Christ is born)
Hodie Salvator apparuit (Today the Savior appears)
Hodie in terra canunt Angeli (Today the angels sing on earth)
laetantur Archangeli. (and the Archangels rejoice.)
Hodie exsultant justi, dicentes (Today the just exult, saying)
Gloria in excelsis Deo (Glory to God in the highest)
Alleluia.
