Priidite, Poklonimsya!

Rachmaninoff’s “Vespers” is playing into our home this morning; an all-time favorite of mine. We used to always be checking it out from the library, Robert Shaw’s version, and finally Mama got our own copy. Beware of other arrangements. It loses something when it’s sung too fast. Priidite, Poklonimsya! Come, Let Us Worship! Greta is accompanying it on her little four-note plinky piano in all the seriousness of a musician perfecting his craft.

I did write a bit last night and will post as soon as I finish uploading some pictures. :)

I really like this song! Perhapes I will have to buy the album for us here at home. :) I knew Greta was gifted musically!

Thank you for reminding me! Now it's playing in our home as well. :) I've had to play the first track a few times just to soak in Priidite. It is just so weighty and massive and beautiful.

Beautiful!! Of course, one could also call it, "Придите, поклонимся!" You do have the right translation! Love you,
