Heinrich Schütz: "Hodie Christus natus est," SWV 315 - Kleine Geistliche Konzerte II

Hodie Christus natus est,
Hodie Salvator apparuit.
Alleluia.
Hodie in terra canunt angeli,
Laetantur archangeli.
Alleluia.
Hodie exultant justi dicentes:
Gloria in excelsis Deo,
Et in terra pax hominibus
Bonae voluntatis.
Alleluia.

Today Christ was born,
Today the Savior appeared.
Hallelujah.
Today the angels sang on earth,
The archangels rejoiced.
Hallelujah.
Today the just exulted, saying:
Glory to God in the highest,
And peace on earth to men
Of good will.
Hallelujah.
