Hymn at Vespers on Christmas Day

 
The text of this chant (proper to Christmas Eve Vespers) is one of the finest of the early Christian hymns, known in many translations including Luther’s famous German version Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland. The music comes from the rich repertory of Sarum chants (that is, the chants used in the pre-Reformation liturgy at Salisbury Cathedral), and is also found in the Aberdeen, York and Mozarabic breviaries.
