". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

"Salvation is Created" - Pavel Chesnokov

Another Advent moment for your consideration. I highly recommend this listening experience.


Spaséñiye, sodélal yesí posredé ziemlí, Bózhe. Allilúiya.

Cпасение coдeлaл еси посреде земли, Боже. Аллилуия.


Salvation is created in the midst of the earth. O God, Our God, Alleluia.

Breathtaking every time I hear it. Would like to post for Advent IV on my blog. May I borrow your Russian and English Translation? Will gladly link to your blog and give you a shout-out.

Iggy, you are welcome to link and borrow, but I can't take credit for the text or the translation. I found them online myself.

It is a gorgeous of music, isn't it? I recently heard a middle school honor chorus--treble voices only--do a beautiful job with it. I think I need to convince my husband to have our church choir sing it next year!

Will give you credit for the research, then!

If they tackle this one at your church next year, let's put it on-line! Perhaps the mens chorus over there would be up for the task.
