This setting of the much-loved hymn to Saint Nicholas, O kto kto, is taken from the Metropolitan Cantor Institute's Byzantine Catholic Hymnal for Nativity and Theophany (2007). The English translation in verses 1-3 is by Professor Michael P. Hilko, choir director of St. John the Baptist Russian Orthodox Church in Passaic, New Jersey. Verse 4 is by Monsignor William Levkulic.

Minor changes were made (and verse 3 added) as part of the Hymnal Project of the Metropolitan Cantor Institute. See the discussion page for details.


This translation was originally published along with the liturgical hymns for the feast of Saint Nicholas in Monsignor Levkulic's The Divine Liturgy, a Book of Prayer (1978), page 104.
