Triodion • Ode III

O Holy Saint Nicholas, Pray to God for Us

by Arvo Pãrt

Triodion • Ode III is a setting of the traditional Orthodox troparion to St. Nicholas. The troparion was chosen as the work commissioned by Lancing College for its 150th anniversary (1998); St. Nicolas is the patron saint of Lancing College.

A rule of faith and a mode of meekness, a teacher of abstinence hath the reality shown thee unto thy flock; therewithal has thou acquired: by humility—greatness, by poverty—riches; O Father hierarch Nicholas, intercede before Christ the God that our souls may be saved.

O Holy Saint Nicolas, pray unto God for us.
O Holy Saint Nicolas, pray unto God for us.
O Holy Saint Nicholas, 
pray unto
God for us,
pray unto
God for us,
O Holy Saint Nicholas, pray unto God for us.

CODA
ad libitum
Glory to the Father,
and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit,
both now,
and ever
and unto ages of ages.
Amen.
