Andrea Bocelli sings a song written by St Alphonsus (Redemptorist Order Founder)

“Tu Scendi Dalle Stelle” You came down from the heavens
composed by St. Alphonsus Liguori in 1744
here sung by Andrea Bocelli

Redemptorists’ everywhere learned this during Novitiate if not before. I have Father Carl Hoegerl and Walter Karr, my novice masters, to thank for teaching my class this and all of St Alphonsus’ songs.

here is a page that has the translation but also offers a ‘choral’ version.
