Here are is the second batch of spiritual songs for Christmas that we are considering as part of the Hymnal Project. Click on the link for the status and discussion page for each one, and see what you think:
- Heaven and earth (Nebo i zeml’a)
- In the town of Bethlehem (V Viflejemi novina)
- Jesus came from heaven (Spas naš narodilsja)
- Joyful news to the whole world (Nova radost’ stala)
- Joyful tidings come our way (Radost nam sja javl’ajet)
Please post your thoughts and suggestions by leaving a comment below!
The current status of the entire project can be found by going to the MCI website (mci.archpitt.org). Look on the left-hand side to find The Hymnal Project, and then click on any Discuss link in the article – especially the ones in bold face, since these are the songs we are focussing on currently.
And if you have suggestions for Christmas songs or hymns to add, now is a very good time to do so! I hope to have a first draft of the Christmas/Theophany portion of the hymnal done by December 16.
