Proclamation of the Birth of Christ - From the Christmas Martyrology - Update

2020 - Vigil of the Nativity | Nativity of the Lord | Christmas Proclamation (Kalendas) | TLM Ordo for the Week

UPDATE: 08/21/2017 - I have discovered another Chanted Latin version of the Proclamation. It is by Mater Ecclesiae.  I am placing the sung YouTube version above the Latin translation with the English translation below. This will allow you to follow the Latin with the sung Chant.  The Proclamation begins at 2:25...
