Poulenc, Francis: Videntes stellam

Videntes stellam (from Quatre motets pour le Temps de Noël, 1951)

Videntes stellam Magi gavisi sunt gaudio magno:
et intrantes domum obtulerunt Domino aurum thus et myrrham.

When they saw the star the Wise Men were filled with a great joy
and they went into the house. There to the Lord they offered gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

Words: Matthew 2 vv. 10–11
Music: Francis Poulenc (1899–1963)
