Merry Christmas!

We, St. John’s Cathedral Choir sang Mozart/Missa Solemnis in C K.337 with orchestra at Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve, and also beautiful Anthem The Isaiah Carols/Kim André Arnesen who is Norwegian composer. The sound is so pure and the text is really telling to our world for making a balance and harmony.

クリスマス・イブは恒例の真夜中のミサが行われ、私たちSt. John’s Cathedral 聖歌隊は、モーツァルトのミサ・ソレムニスをオーケストラと歌いました。そして、礼拝の中の Anthem はノルウェーの作曲家 Kim André Arnesen の The Isaiah Carolsを歌いました。この曲はとても美しいピュアなハーモニーです。歌詞はイザヤ書からで、この地上でより多くのバランス・ハーモニーを取っていくことが難しくなっている昨今、とても考えさせられる内容だと思いました。

Music text from Isaiah 11:6-9

The wolf will live with the lamb,
the leopard will lie down with the goat,
the calf and the lion and the yearling together;
and a little child will lead them.

Alleluia, alleluia!

The cow will feed with the bear,
their young will lie down together,
and the lion will eat straw like the ox.

Alleluia, alleluia!

The infant will play near the cobra’s den,
and the young child will put its hand into the viper’s nest.

Alleluia, alleluia!

They will neither harm nor destroy
on all my holy mountain,
for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord
as the waters cover the sea.

Alleluia, alleluia!

Wish you all a very blessed and wonderful Christmas, and peaceful New Year 2020.


May your Easter be filled with bright feelings and your hearts be filled with love and joy. 

St John’s Cathedral

We, Cathedral choir has finished Easter Vigil service tonight.
And also we sang Musical Devotion; John Stainer/The Crucifixion with solo and choir with organ on 17 April in Holy Week.  “God so loved the world” is included in this music. It’s beautiful and my favourite.

復活祭のお祝いでお花がたくさんの大聖堂は、とってもきれい。今夜は Easter Vigil 特別礼拝で歌ったところです。また、4月17日にはイギリスの作曲家 John Stainer キリストの受難のオラトリオを、キリスト、弟子たちをソロ、合唱、オルガンで演奏しました。この中に含まれているGod so loved the world はとてもきれいな曲で、私も大好きです。

Happy Easter!
