Some of you have your churches shut down by the quarantine, so an extra hymn on a Sunday afternoon won’t come amiss–Gloria in Excelsis Deo, sung by the Libera boys’ choir (“Glory to God in the highest”). You can probably work out the Latin lyrics by yourself.
Well, no one has requested a hymn for today, so I had to go out and find one.
This is Gloria in Excelsis Deo, by the students at Fountainview Academy–and what do you think of that snowscape?
One of the most gorgeous pieces of music I know, sometimes I post it when it’s nowhere near Christmas: requested by Joshua, sung by the Libera boys’ choir, Gloria in Excelsis Deo, by Camille Saint-Saens. You don’t mind that the lyrics are in Latin, do you?
Usually I save this hymn for Christmas-time, but I had a desire for it yesterday–Gloria in Excelsis Deo, by Saint-Saens, sung by the Libera boys’ choir.
We’re open all day for hymn requests, by the way. Just leave a comment anywhere.
Here’s another blessing a lot of us could use today–a glorious, beautiful hymn, Gloria in Excelsis Deo, performed by the Libera Boys Choir with Fiona Pears, Robert Prizeman, Ian Tilley, and the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.
Requested by Joshua–and thanks, Joshua, for that!
I usually play this hymn around Christmas time, but really, it’s good for anytime–Gloria in Excelsis Deo by Saint-Saens, sung by the Libera boys’ choir. You can almost understand the Latin lyrics, if you just relax and listen.
Before I sicken my soul with writing up some nooze, let me try to fortify it with this: Gloria in Excelsis Deo by St. Saens, sung by the Libera boys’ choir.
This is not an entry in the Christmas Carol Contest. I can’t enter my own contest. So far today, we have no entrys. C’mon, now, everybody!
I usually save this hymn for Christmas-time, but something made me want it for today. Gloria in Excelsis Deo, “Glory to God in the highest,” sung by the boys’ choir, Libera: music by Saint-Saens. The words are in Latin, but if you listen, you can probably understand more than you might have expected.
No one has requested a hymn today, so I’ll dip into my own internal hymnal and fish out a favorite: Gloria in Excelsis Deo (“Glory to God in the Highest”), sung by the Libera boys’ choir. I like this video because it displays the Latin lyrics–which, if you put your mind to it, you’ll probably be able to understand.
They’ve still got the creche up, across the street at St. Francis’, so why not? Gloria in Excelsis Deo, composed by Saint-Saens, sung by the Libera Boys Choir–yeah, let’s turn it up. Let’s revel in it. “Glory to the most high God!”
Do you find you can understand the Latin lyrics when they’re displayed along with the music? I find it so. And I never studied Latin.
