Subject: Lyr Add: ADESTE FIDELES
There is a beautiful one I have only heard on one record..it is in Latin..Mariam et Joseph et infantatem positum in precipio.

I love Latin and miss it so much. ADESTE FIDELES. Other people are forever singing Panis Angelicus to a different tune on Christmas but I haven't ever heard a Catholic do it. Bing Crosby did the definitive version of Adeste Fideles.

Well, if no one knows the words, here they are from memory which may be wrong..

Adeste fideles laeti triumphantes
Venite venite in Bethlehem
Natum videte regem angelorum
Venite adoremus venite adoremus venite adoremus dominun

Cantate nunc lo chorus angelorum
Cantate hodie in Jerusalem
Gloria gloria in excelsis deo
Venite etc.

Deum de deo lumen de lumine
Deum verum de deo vero
Genitum non factum transubstantionem
venite etc...


Has anyone heard that one?
