Sunday Music & Ubi Caritas

Choir on the Stairs sings “Ubi Caritas / Ola Gjeilo.”

Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est.
Congregavit nos in unum Christi amor.
Exultemus, et in ipso iucundemur.
Timeamus, et amemus Deum vivum.
Et ex corde diligamus nos sincero.

Where charity and love are, God is there.
Christ’s love has gathered us into one.
Let us rejoice and be pleased in Him.
Let us fear, and let us love the living God.
And may we love each other with a sincere heart.

Advent Music & Virga Jesse & Bruckner

“Virga Jesse” by Anton Bruckner, performed by the Zurich Boy’s Choir.

Virga Jesse,
Virga Jesse,
Virga Jesse floruit,
Virgo Deum et hominem genuit:
Pacen Deus reddidit,
In se, reconcilians,
Ima summis.
Alleluia.

The rod of Jesse hath blossomed;
A Virgin hath brought forth God and man;
God hath restored peace,
Reconciling in Himself the lowest with the highest.
Alleluja.
