Ts’mindao Ghmerto წმინდაო ღმერთო

First, a reminder that you still have all day today to enter the giveaway for an advance copy of Sparkers! Entries will be closed at midnight tonight, and I’ll announce the winner shortly.

I’m rather swamped at the moment, what with final papers and all, so today I’m just posting this recording of a gorgeous Georgian hymn, Ts’mindao Ghmerto. It’s a setting of the Trisagion (isn’t that a lovely word?), part of the Orthodox Christian liturgy. We tried to learn this in Georgian chorus last week and, ah, didn’t quite get there, but we will! This recording is by the ensemble Kitka, which is not from Georgia, but I like their rendition very much.
