Boh predvicnyj

This setting of Radost' nam sja javl'ajet is taken from the Metropolitan Cantor Institute's Byzantine Catholic Hymnal for Nativity and Theophany (2007). The English translation is by Monsignor William Levkulic.

This hymn was reviewed as part of the Hymnal Project of the Metropolitan Cantor Institute. See the discussion page.


This setting was published in the 1970 collection Byzantine Liturgical Chant, on page C12 (number 19 in the Christmas Carols section), and in the Hymns section of Monsignor Levkulic's The Divine Liturgy, a Book of Prayer (1978).

A harmonized setting can be found on page 998 of the The Divine Liturgy: An Anthology for Worship (Ukrainian Catholic, 2004).
