Our Y8 Third Term composer study focused on Sergei Rachmaninoff.
This short piece is the first movement of his Vespers (All Night Vigil) Op. 37 mass for a cappella choir.

Amin’.
Priiditye, poklonimsya Tsarevi nashemu Bogu.
Priiditye, poklonimsya i pripadyom
Khristu Tsarevi nashemu Bogu.
Priiditye, poklonimsya i pripadyom
samomu Khristu Tsarevi i Bogu nashemu.
Priiditye, poklonimsya i pripadyom Yemu.
Amen.
O come, let us worship before the Lord our Maker.
O come, let us worship and fall down
before the Lord Christ, our God and Maker.
O come, let us worship and fall down
and kneel before the Very Christ,
our God and Maker.
O come, let us worship and fall down before Him.

  1. Are you Orthodox? I ask because we are Orthodox and this is sung during the vespers service every Saturday night. It’s absolutely beautiful!
