Spectacular Music Christmas Offering of the Day

Psallite, unigenito (a 4)

Psallite Psallite unigenito
Christo Dei Filio, Christo Dei Filio,
Redemptori Domino, puerulo, iacenti in praesepio.

What if an Infant small be cradled in the stall,
Angel quires in heav’nly hall
Before his footstool fall, 
Singing anthems all.

Whether it was or wasn’t, this sounds like it must have been a drinking song long long before it was set as a Christmas song circa 1600.
