  1. LOL. Excellent. Now perhaps someone would like to compose a similar Gregorian motet for “Sanctus Nicholas in oppidum venit”.

  2. Perhaps I’m slow on the uptake, but I’ve now noticed that the Latin words also fit the original tune of “Rudolph”, which I think is wonderful, although the rhythm of the tune means displacing the stress on some of the words. But then Handel sometimes ran into the same problem, e.g. “have se-en A great light.”
