Merry Christmas Music: Adeste Fideles

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

About fourteen years ago, I was watching Saturday night live and I saw Pavarotti and Vanessa Williams perform "Adeste Fideles (O Come All Ye Faithful)" live. I was moved. I went looking for the video out on the internet and was unable to find it. I did find this duet of Pavarotti and Trisha Yearwood singing the song with orchestra and choral accompaniment. This is from Pavarotti & Friends 1998 Live dal Parco Novi Sad di Modena 9 giugno 1998. It is a stirring piece of REAL CHRISTMAS MUSIC.



Adeste fideles,
Laeti triumphantes;
Venite, venite in Bethlehem;
Natum videte,
Regem Angelorum:
Venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus Dominum!

2. Deum de Deo,
Lumen de lumine,
Gestant puellae viscera;
Deum verum,
Genitum, non factum:
Venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus Dominum!

3. Cantet nunc hymnos
Chorus angelorum,
Cantet nunc aula caelestium:
Gloria, gloria,
In excelsis Deo!
Venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus Dominum!

4. Ergo qui natus
Die hodierna,
Jesu tibi sit gloria;
Patris aeterni
Verbum caro factum!
Venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus Dominum!

Oh, come, all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant!
Oh, come ye, oh, come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and behold him
Born the king of angels:
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Christ the Lord.

Highest, most holy,
Light of light eternal,
Born of a virgin,
A mortal he comes;
Son of the Father
Now in flesh appearing!
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Christ the Lord.

Sing, choirs of angels,
Sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above!
Glory to God
In the highest:
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Christ the Lord.


Yea, Lord, we greet thee,
Born this happy morning;
Jesus, to thee be glory given!
Word of the Father,
Now in flesh appearing!
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Christ the Lord.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
