A Latin Hymn expresses the belief that Jesus was born on midnight:

When the midnight, dark and still,

Wrapped in silence vale and hill:

God the Son, through Virgin’s birth, Following the Father’s will,

Started life as Man on earth    [Weiser, 1990, 52].

This belief influenced the midnight mass.
