Al Vi, Sinjoro, estu honoro, laŭdo, glor'

Representative Text

1. Al vi, Sinjoro, estu honoro, laŭdo, glor',
al kiu dolĉe kantis la infanara ĥor'.
“Ho filo de Davido! Ho Izraela reĝ'!
Mesio profetita en Dia sankta leĝ'!”

2. Vin laŭdas anĝelaro en la ĉiela mond';
Kaj sur la tero homoj kantadas je respond'.
Hebreoj palmobranĉojn portadis antaŭ vi;
kaj preĝojn, himnojn, laŭdojn prezentas ankaŭ ni.

3. Kantadis ili antaŭ la kruco-agoni';
kaj nun al vi tronanta jen nia melodi'.
La laŭdo de infanoj ĝojigis vin, Sinjor';
ho, nian kanton ankaŭ akceptu kun favor'.

Author: Theodulf, Bishop of Orléans

Theodulph of Orleans appears to have been a native of Italy. He was brought to France by Charles the Great, perhaps when Charles returned from Italy in 781. He became Bishop of Orleans about 785, and soon afterwards also Abbot of Fleury. After the death of Charles he continued for some time on friendly terms with the Emperor Louis, but, falling under suspicion of being concerned in the plot in favour of Bernard of Italy, was imprisoned in 818, at Angers, where he seems to have died in 821, apparently on Sep. 18. There is a full and interesting sketch of his life and works in the Dictionary of Chr. Biog., iii., pp. 983-989. See also Potthast's Biblical History, Medii Aevi, 1896, vol. ii., p. 1058. The best and most recent edition of his Carm… Go to person page >

Translator (English): J. M. Neale

John M. Neale's life is a study in contrasts: born into an evangelical home, he had sympathies toward Rome; in perpetual ill health, he was incredibly productive; of scholarly tem­perament, he devoted much time to improving social conditions in his area; often ignored or despised by his contemporaries, he is lauded today for his contributions to the church and hymnody. Neale's gifts came to expression early–he won the Seatonian prize for religious poetry eleven times while a student at Trinity College, Cambridge, England. He was ordained in the Church of England in 1842, but ill health and his strong support of the Oxford Movement kept him from ordinary parish ministry. So Neale spent the years between 1846 and 1866 as a warden of Sackvi… Go to person page >

Translator (Esperanto): Clarence Bicknell

Clarence Bicknell (27 October 1842-17 July 1918) was a British amateur botanist, painter and archaeologist, with a doctorate in mathematics, and an Anglican priest (in Italy, from 1877 until he left the Church, date unknown). He was born in Herne Hill, England, on October 27, 1842, and died in Tenda (then in Italy, but since 1947 in France) on July 17, 1918. Arriving in Italy in 1877 to work as an Anglican vicar, he built a museum ("Museo Biblioteca Clarence Bicknell") in Bordighera to house his botanical and archaeological collections. He became noted for his identification of the plants and petroglyphs of the Ligurian Riviera. His writings included Flowering Plants of the Riviera and Neighboring Mountains (1885) and Guide to the Prehis… Go to person page >
