The singers feel that they have almost fulfilled their religious obligations. It is time for their host to provide some celebratory food and drink. They point out that it should be a celebration worthy of three festivals at once.
Ukrainian Christmas Carol for SSA voices a cappella, trad. arr. Vladimir Morozov. No. 10 of a set of 15.
Master of the house, we wish you a good evening.
Rejoice and sing! All the earth rejoice!
The Son of God now is born.
Set upon your table all your finest linen.
Bring us out some bread now, warm and brown and crusty.
Celebrate the season: three great feasts together.
First the feast of Christmas, birth of our king Jesus.
Next the feast of Basil, saint from Cappadoccia.
Then the feast in January of our lord's Epiphany
First the feast of Christmas brings us consolation.
Next the feast of Basil brings sweet jubilation.
Finally, Epiphany reminds us of our destiny.
words by Sheena Phillips
based on a translation of the original Ukrainian provided by Vladimir Morozov
