Christmas Carol Spotlight: Christ was born on Christmas Day

Christ was Born on Christmas Day is a Hymn based on the Latin Text "Resonet in Laudibus"  although it was never set to music until after it was translated. The Carol is dated to the 14th century.  As far as I'm concerned for anything to date to the 14th century is mind boggling.  I love the lulling rhythm in it, it makes me feel all cozy and sleepy and Christmasy.  I wonder if it's been doing that for young mothers for 700 years?
