Gradual for Christmas Day

Belatedly, I remembered that Viderunt Omnes, a very rare example of organum quadruplum (or four-part polyphony) was actually written specifically to be sung on Christmas Day. This version was recorded by The Hilliard Ensemble in 1988 and provides the opening track on their 1989 cd Perotin, which was one of the first in my ars antiqua-collection.
