Rorate coeli desuper
Veni veni Emanuel
Es ist ein Ros entsprungen
Dum deambularet Dominus in
Adam lay y-bounden
In dulci iubilo
Missus est Gabriel
Puer natus est
O magnum mysterium
Voi ch'ai notturni rai
Dormi, dormi, o bel bambin
Liebe Hirten
We three kings
Videntes stellam
Personent hodie
Herodes iratus
Vox in Rama
Uebers Gebirg
Maria wallt zum Heiligtum
The holly and the ivy
Barn Jesus i en krybbe la
We wish you a merry Christmas
