"Gaudete" as written by Andy Bell, Vince Clarke and Traditional,....
Gaudete, gaudete! Christus est natus
Ex Maria virgine: Gaudete!

Tempus adest gratiae, Hoc quod optabamus
Carmina laetitiae Devote redamus.

Deus homo factus est Natura mirante,
Mundus renovatus est A Christo regnante.

Ezecheelis porta clausa per transitur
Unde Lux est orta Salus invenitur.

Ergo nostra contio psallat iam in lustro,
Benedicat Domino salus Regi nostro.


Rejoice! Rejoice!
Christ is born of the Virgin Mary; Rejoice!

The time of grace has come for which we have prayed
Let us devoutly sing songs of joy.

God is made man, while nature wonders
The world is renewed by Christ the King.

The closed gate of Ezekiel has been passed through
From where the light has risen (the East), salvation is found.

Therefore, let our assembly sing praises now at this time of purification
Let it bless the Lord: greetings to our King.

    General CommentA very, very nice song, sung remarkably well. Entirely acapella, the close-harmony chorus is a real treat. Manages at once to be both joyful and deeply sacred.
    Not usually a fan of religious music, but this is worlds apart.
