Gaudeat Ecclesia (Christmas Season)

Words: Robert Loretz, translated or newly written

Music: 13th Century Traditional

Here the original verses are largely intact, and have a clear Christmas flavour, celebrating the mystery of the Incarnation and the freedom that it brings. The chorus is half in English and half in the original Latin: 'Eya et eya, regia egregia, gaudeat ecclesia!', which means: 'Eya and eya (an expression of joy), the magnificent royal Church rejoices!' The music has a lilting energy which gives a joyful celebratory mood. It is in the Dorian Mode.
