The Roman Rite Christmas Proclamation

I'm pleased to present you with the Christmas Proclamation (Kalenda) as it will be sung at the Vatican and can be sung universally in the Roman Rite. It is in Latin and square notes. It is sung at the beginning of Mass, even before the procession. Here it is in English at the USCCB. Yes, the text has changed through the years.
