from Oannes *
Ένας από τους πολλούς συνθέτες που έχουν μελοποιήσει τον λατινικό ύμνο “Ένα παιδί Γεννήθηκε Στη Βηθλεέμ” [13ος αι.] είναι ο Γερμανός Michael Praetorius [1571-1621]. Ακούμε το έργο από τους Gabrieli Consort & Players υπό τη διεύθυνση του Paul McGreesh.
One of the many composers who have set the Latin hymn “A Child Was Born In Bethlehem” [13th century] to music, is the German Michael Praetorius [1571-1621]. We hear the work performed by Gabrieli Consort & Players, under the direction of Paul McGreesh.
As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music !
* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
