In this year of all years, we wish singers and audiences everywhere a ‘Happy Christmas’ and offer you our recording of ‘Hodie Christus Natus Est’, the last of Francis Poulenc’s ‘Quatre Motets Pour Le Temps de Noël’.

Hodie Christus natus est, hodie Salvator apparuit; hodie in terra canunt Angeli, laetantur Archangeli; hodie exsultant justi, dicentes: Gloria in excelsis Deo, alleluia.
Today Christ is born; today the Saviour has appeared; today Angels sing on Earth, Archangels rejoice; today the righteous celebrate, saying: Glory to God in the highest. Alleluia!
