Christ Was Born on Christmas Day (Christus Natus Hodie)

Christ Was Born on Christmas Day – Resonet in Laudibus. 13th century Latin hymn. Freely translated by John Mason Neale. Led by Amanda, Jack and Richard at the Church of St. Mary on 12/25/2016.

Christ was born on Christmas Day;
Wreathe the holly, twine the bay;
Christus natus hodie:
The Babe, the Son, the Holy One of Mary.

He is born to set us free,
He is born our Lord to be,
Ex Maria Virgine:
The God, the Lord, by all ador’d forever.

Let the bright red berries glow
Ev’rywhere in goodly show;
Christus natus hodie:
The Babe, the Son, the Holy One of Mary.

Christians all, rejoice and sing;
‘Tis the birthday of a King,
Ex Mariâ Virgine:
The God, the Lord, by all ador’d forever.

Yes, it sounds medieval

I'd like to hear it with flute and ceramic drum.
