Go, tell it on the mountain

Τα παιδιά της χορωδίας την παραμονή τραγούδησαν και το γνωστό παραδοσιακό χριστουγεννιάτιο άσμα Go, tell it on the mountain*.

Διάλεξα το βίντεο που ακολουθεί γιατί μουσικά πλησιάζει αυτό που άκουσα στην εκκλησία των Πρεσβυτεριανών.

*Το τραγούδι είναι αφροαμερικανικό spiritual, διασκευή του John Wesley (Work II, 1907).

Go, tell it on the mountain,

Over the hills and everywhere

Go, tell it on the mountain,

That Jesus Christ is born.


 

While shepherds kept their watching

Over silent flocks by night

Behold throughout the heavens

There shone a holy light.


 

The shepherds feared and trembled,

When lo! above the earth,

Rang out the angels chorus

That hailed the Savior’s birth.


 

Down in a lowly manger

The humble Christ was born

And God sent us salvation

That blessèd Christmas morn.

.
Go, tell it on the mountain,
