In Dulci Jubilo

Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates the Nativity on the new calendar!

Here is In Dulci Jubilo sung at King’s College, Cambridge, in a different Latin and English version than the one shown below, though they are close.

In dulci jubilo
Let us our homage show
Our heart’s joy reclineth
In praesepio
And like a bright star shineth
Matris in gremio,
Alpha es et O!

O Jesu parvule,
My heart is sore for Thee
Hear me, I beseech Thee
O puer optime
My praying let it reach Thee!
O princeps gloriae.
Trahe me post te.

O patris caritas!
O nati lenitas!
Deeply were we stained
Per nostra crimina
But Thou for us hast gained
Coelorum gaudia,
Qualis gloria!

Ubi sunt gaudia,
If that they be not there?
There are angels singing
Nova cantica;
And there the bells are ringing
In regis curia.
O that we were there!

Enjoy the carols of the holiday. In the spirit of such, here are the Yuletide songs from my December, 2008 music posts.
