SATB a cappella. Rhythmic and joyful, with a macaronic text in Latin and English. Lots of fun - choirs love it!
Christo Dei filio
Iacenti in præsepio.
[Sing Psalms to the only-begotten,
Christ the Son of God
The Redeemer Lord
The little baby
Lying in a manger.]
See there within the stall, a baby cold and small.
Angels of the Lord came down and with their joyful sound,
Angels of the Lord came down and glory shone around.
What news their songs employ with such resounding joy?
Tidings of the new-born King, let earth and heaven ring,
Their praises echoing.
