This third (and near-final) group of spiritual songs for Christmas includes two old favorites:
and three NEW English translations of Slavonic hymns:
- Let creation shout with gladness (Vselennaja veselisja)
- Now, Father Adam (Nyni Adame vozveselisja)
- Today in the cave of Bethlehem (V Viflejemi dnes’ Marija)
Please look them over and post your comments below. Wondrous news, in particular, has had a couple of small changes made to the English setting, and I would appreciate your thoughts.
For more about the new hymnal, see The Hymnal Project.
Many thanks to J. Michael Thompson, Kenneth Dilks, and Glenn Sedar for submitting English translations for potential use in the new collection!
