Shepherds: Annunciation -- One of three sheep nibbles tree. One of two shepherds wears hood and mantle of skins, holds pedum in left hand, and raises right hand, and the other, wearing hat, raises right forefinger. Both look up toward nimbed angel descending from cloud and with right hand indicating swaddled, cross-nimbed Christ Child, both within bow of initial P decorated with gold background.
Beginning of introit for Christmas Day.
