Editor's Note:

Beginning on p. 252, Daniel also gives seven of the eight verses, and like Fallersleben, the first two are Magnum nomen domini, and the last six are Resonet in Laudibus.

The only point of difference is the first two lines of the last verse:


8. Et vos unanimiter
pręclamamus dulciter:
ipse pius arbiter
appararuit quem genuit


8. Et nos unanimiter
proclamemus dulciter;
ipse pius arbiter
apparet, quem genuit
