Giotto and Tchaikovsky: Birth of Christ

Wishing you all peace and joy!

~Sunnyside 🙂

 

[We], who mystically representing

the cherubim and singing the thrice-holy hymn

to the life-creating Trinity, let us now lay aside

every worldly care so that we may raise

up the king of all who is invisibly borne

aloft by the angelic orders

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia
