One of the closest version is that of a Neapolitan book of hours (c.1480), D-Ngm 22402, 84v (as reproduced in CIP; see http://bilder.manuscripta-mediaevalia.de/hs//katalogseiten/HSK0060_c134_JPG.htm):

Further notes: 

The Marian antiphon that constitutes the first part of this text is inscribed in some fifteenth-century Flemish paintings (see J. M. Upton, Petrus Christus: His Place in Fifteenth-Century Flemish Painting, 1990).

The second part of the text was used as a devotional Elevation prayer, as shown in a late-sixteenth-century Jesuit handwritten prayerbook (see MELION 2016, 200).

Gasser’s claim that this text is included in the so-called Hours of Bona Sforza (GB-Lbl Add. MS 34294) appears to be unfounded (GASSER 2001, 289).

Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum. Benedicta tu in mulieribus et benedictus fructus ventris tui. Spiritus Sanctus superveniet in te; virtus Altissimi obumbrabit tibi. Ecce ancilla Domini; fiat michi secundum verbum tuum.

Quem vidistis pastores? Dicite, annuntiate nobis. Quis apparuit in terris? In choro angelorum natum vidimus salvatorem dominum quem genuit puerpera cui nomen aeternum et gaudia matris habens cum virginitatis honor. Nec primam similem visa est nec habere sequentem.

English translation: 

Whom did you see, shepherds? Say, tell us. Who has appeared on earth? We saw the son in the choir of angels, Saviour and Lord. He who the mother gave birth to, who, having the eternal name and joys of a mother, yet is seen with the honour of virginity, having none like her before, nor any following.
