Thomas Tallis: Euge caeli (Dixon)

Performance of La Chapelle du Roi, Alistair Dixon conducting [NML] (info)

Ave preclara maris stella in lucem gentium Maria
divinitus orta.

Euge caeli porta que non aperta veritatis lumen,
ipsum solem iustitiae, indutum carne, ducis in

Hail, noble star of the sea, Mary, divinely born into
the view of the heathen.

Welcome gate of heaven which, having not been
open, the light of truth now opens to the sun of
justice, dressed in flesh, the leader of the world.
