Christmas introit for mixed choir (SSATB a cappella). Latin text. Bubbling with excitement right under the surface, exploding into a glorious "Alleluia!" at the end.

1. Verbum Patris hodie processit de Virgine: virtutes angelice cum canore jubilo benedicamus Domino.

2.  Pacem bonis omnibus Nuntiavit angelus: refulsit pastoribus velud solis claritas. Deo dicamus gratias. Alleluia.


[1. The Word of the Father this day comes forth from a Virgin; the angelic powers with jubilant song bless the Lord.
2. The angel announced peace to all good men; light as of the sun shone on the shepherds. Let us give thanks to God. Alleluia.]
