Matushka Marina and Nat are singing a Christmas song in German, “Nun zünden wir die Lichter an”. Also Nat signing alone, with English subtitles, and the German lyrics.
Videos: The Nativity Troparion (English), in a beautiful Serbian melody:One of my favorites! Another video in a more typically heard Russian melody. Then a Nativity medley, in English and Slavonic, from last year.
Nativity Kontakion – “Today the Virgin”. It is sung in a small room, in which the choir sometimes practices. It does not sound as good in the video as it does in person. Our little church is blessed with a very good choir, and what’s more – a peaceful one. Actually, we are all very peaceful, glory be to God. I believe we need to grow a little, but as we do, I pray that we do not change our personality. I have been around, and we have no “drama”, except when we have our Yolka (more videos to follow).
