Thursday 8 December - Christus est stella (Will Todd)
Sung by the Vasari Singers.
Christus est stella matutina, Alleluia;
Qui nocte saeculi transacta, Alleluia;
Lucem vitae sanctis promittit, Alleluia;
Et pandit aeternam, Alleluia.
Christ is the morning star, Alleluia;
Who when the night of this world is past, Alleluia;
Promises and reveals to his saints, Alleluia;
The everlasting light of life, Alleluia
