Der Engel sprach zu den Hirten

Heinrich Schütz (1585-1627)

Original Text

English Translation

 

Der Engel sprach zu den Hirten:
Ich verkündige euch große Freude,
denn euch ist heute der Heiland geborn,
welcher ist Christus der Herr
in der Stadt David,
und er heißt Wunderbar,
Rat, Kraft, Held,
ewig Vater, Friedefürst.
Alleluia.

The angel spoke unto the shepherds:
I bring you good tidings of great joy,
for unto you is born this day a Savior,
which is Christ the Lord
in the city of David,
and He shall be called Wonderful,
Counselor, Power, Hero,
Eternal Fater, Prince of Peace.
Alleluia.


This piece was performed by the SFBC in Schütz, Schein, & Scheidt: Three Great Early Kapellmeisters on October 29, 1995, and in Psallite! A Candlelight Christmas on December 4, 2004.
