The Drakies singing "Hodie Christus Natus Est" ("Today Christ was born") like it's never been sung before. This performance is from their Christmas 2011 concert series. Lyrics and a translation to English are both below the fold. Enjoy :-).

Lyrics: Hodie Christus Natus Est


Latin English

Hodie Christus natus est. Hodie salvator apparuit.
Hodie in terra canunt angeli. Letantur arcangeli.
Hodie exultant iusti dicentes:
Gloria in excelsis Deo. Alleluia.

Today Christ was born. Today the saviour appeared.
Today on earth the angels sing. The archangels are joyful.
Today the righteous rejoice saying:
Glory to God in the highest. Alleluia.
