I was pondering writing about Christmas music, some of which we’ve been listening to over the last week. But today, as expected, has been somewhat busy.
So, instead of writing about Christmas music, I’m going to write about Christmas music.
The Troparion for the Nativity:
Your Nativity, O Christ our God,
Has shone to the world the Light of wisdom!
For by it, those who worshipped the stars,
Were taught by a Star to adore You,
The Sun of Righteousness,
And to know You, the Orient from on High.
O Lord, glory to You!
And the Kontakion:
Today the Virgin gives birth to the Transcendent One,
And the earth offers a cave to the Unapproachable One!
Angels with shepherds glorify Him!
The wise men journey with a star!
Since for our sake the Eternal God was born as a Little Child!
Have a great Christmas, everybody!
