Beati Quorum Via by Charles Villiers Stanford 

Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord. 

Ad te Levavi by Palestrina - Setting of the Introit for Advent I

Unto thee, O Lord, will I lift up my soul; my God, I have put my trust in thee:
O let me not be confounded, neither let mine enemies triumph over me.
25:2a  For all they that hope in thee shall not be ashamed.

Adam Lay Ybounden by Boris Ord

Adam Lay ybounden, bounden in a bond. 
Four thousand winter thought he not too long. 

And all was for an apple, an apple that he took. 
As clerkes finden written in their book. 

Ne, ne, had the apple taken been. 
Ne had never our ladie abeen heav'ne queen. 

Blessed be the time that apple taken was
therefore we moun singen Deo gracias. 

The Messiah by G.F. Handel
