Original

Descendit de coelis - Ex exivit per auream portam. William Byrd. A cappella. Sacred , Motet. Language. Latin. ATTBBB. A setting of the text of the third respond at Matins, Christmas Day, Sarum rite. The structure of Byrd's setting would allow its use in the liturgy, although this can hardly have been intended.
