Angelus ad pastores ait [The angel said to the shepherds] (Luke 2:10-11) – Giovanni Gabrieli
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
Music text paraphrase:
The angel said to the shepherds: ‘I bring you tidings of great joy,
for the Saviour of the world has been born to you today.’
A tiny son is born to us today, and he shall be called Mighty God.
