Do any of you have a mental tune for the "Angel of Caprona"?

When I first read TMOC, in primary school, I thought of it
as fitting the tune of "Jesus, good above all other",
which we sometimes sang in assembly. I found out today that
that tune was written to fit a Latin hymn:

Quem pastores laudavere,
Quibus angeli dixere:
Absit vobis iam timere,
Natus est rex gloriae.

You can see the score at http://hymnary.org/media/fetch/108123 .
I wonder whether Diana had a tune in mind.
