As this one is in four parts, I enlisted the help of some of my children, which was a lot of fun, plus interesting to see myself kinda conducting.

Here is the podcast:

A favourite Medieval Christmas Carol which you can install in your own family with our step by step guide!

Here is the hymn’s page here

Gaudete, gaudete, Christus est natus
Ex Maria Virgine, gaudete

Tempus adest gratiae
Hoc quod optabamus
Carmina laetitiae
Devote redamus

Deus homo factus est
Natura mirante
Mundus renovatus est
A Christo regnante

Ezechielis porta
Clausa pertransitur
Unde lux est orta
Salus invenitur

Ergo nostra contio
Psallat iam in lustro
Benedicat Domino
Salus Regi nostro

or in English:

Rejoice, Rejoice! Christ is born of the Virgin Mary! Rejoice!

The time of grace has come for which we have prayed. Let us devoutly sing songs of joy!

God is made man, while nature wonders. The world is renewed by Christ the King.

The closed gate of Ezekiel has been passed through. Whence the light has risen, salvation is found.

Therefore let our assembly sing praises at this time of purification. Let us bless the Lord! Greetings to our King!
