Es ist ein Ros entsprungen*
Michael Praetorius (1609)
*Translation: Verse 1:
A rose has sprung up,
from a tender root.
As the old ones sang to us,
Its lineage was from Jesse.
And it has brought forth a floweret
In the middle of the cold winter
Well at half the night.

Verse 2:
The rosebud that I mean,
Of which Isaiah told
Is Mary, the pure,
Who brought us the floweret.
At God's immortal word,
She has borne a child
Well at half the night.

Anonymous (1530)
Pavan: The Cradle
Anthony Holborne (1599)

Riu, riu chiu*
Spanish Carol, Anonymous (1556)
*Translation of Refrain: The river bank is protected
God has kept the wolf
From our ewe lamb
God has kept the wolf
From our ewe lamb
