2. CYPRUS: 4 Chords -“Christmas Carols On The Age Of Covid 19”

“Christmas Carols On The Age Of Covid 19”

Music by: Konstantinos Papoutsis
Lyrics by: Katevasies Chistougennon (Byzantine psalm)

Konstantinos has participated before in the contest. This year he sends a choral song to the contest.

“I think, a choral and a Christmas song is the first time for the contest,” says Konstantinos. Well, I guess we have to take a look in the archives of the contest that can be found on the homepage.

Best of luck this year and welcome back!

Lyrics:

(Latin): Gloria in excelsis Deo…
(Ancient Greek):
Χριστὸς γεννᾶται · δοξάσατε.
Χριστὸς ἐξ οὐρανῶν · ἀπαντήσατε.
Χριστὸς ἐπὶ γῆς · ὑψώθητε.
ᾌσατε τῷ Κυρίῳ πᾶσα ἡ γῆ, καὶ ἐν εὐφροσύνῃ,
ἀνυμνήσατε λαοί · ὅτι δεδόξασται.

Translation:

Christ is born, glorify Him
Christ from Heaven, go meet Him.
Christ on earth, be exalted.
Sing to the Lord, O world!
And praise Him in joy,
For He is glorified.
