about

Written by Michael Praetorius in 1609, this exuberant little carol captures the joy that comes at the end of Advent--the Incarnation itself--in a bilingual style characteristic of many polyphonies of the the early 17th century.

lyrics

(Original Latin and German)
Psallite, unigenito
Christo Dei Filio, Christo Dei Filio,
Redemptori Domino, puerulo, iacenti in praesepio.

Ein kleines Kindelein liegt in dem Krippelein;
Alle liebe Engelein dienen dem Kindelein, und singen ihm fein,

Psallite, unigenito
Christo Dei Filio, Christo Dei Filio,
Redemptori Domino, puerulo, iacenti in praesepio.

(Translation into English)
Sing your psalms to Christ,
the only begotten Son of God,
sing your psalms to the Redeemer.

A small Child lies in the manger.
All the blessed angels serve Him and sing to Him.

Sing your psalms to Christ,
the only begotten Son of God,
sing your psalms to the Redeemer.
