Purest Mother, people of the homeland

Boh predvicnyj

This English setting of Prečistaja D'ivo, Mati našoho kraju is by Father William Levkulic and Cantor Jerry Jumba.

This hymn was edited as part of the Hymnal Project of the Metropolitan Cantor Institute. See this blog entry.


A different translaton was printed in the Hymns section of Monsignor Levkulic's The Divine Liturgy, a Book of Prayer (1978), but is a poorer fit to the original Slavonic melody.

Text and music were included in the Marian Hymnal (1984) on page 35.
