Music Monday--Christmas Eve--Hodie Christus Natus Est

I became aware of Benjamin Britten's Ceremony of Carols during High School and fell in love with each of the songs. This one, Hodie Christus Natus Est means Today Christ is Born. I sing it as an introit on Christmas Eve to announce the birth of Christ.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
