Sam: Arabic help, please!
« on: June 04, 2003, 12:33:03 PM »
Sam,

Could you please write out in transliterated Arabic what the text for "O Son of God, who are risen from the dead save us who sing to you, alleluia!" (Kalisnaya, yab nallah or what not).

Thanks!

This isn't done with my trademark accuracy, so roughly transliterated:

Khal'li(s)na yab nal'lah, ya men qama min bay'nil amwaat, na(h)nul muran'nimeena laka, halelooiy'ya.

Translated literally, it is phrased, "Save us O' Son of God, O' who rose from the dead, us the singing to you, Alleluia.  For clarity, the last phrase can be understood to mean, "us, those who are singing to you."

The two letters in paranthesis are Arabic consonants.  The first is a rolled 's'; the second is an exhaled breath.

Just a comment: we have a lady from Jerusalem in our church who sings in Arabic at every Divine Liturgy.

Beautiful, absolutely beautiful.

I'm wagering you already know of the Melkite Sr. Marie Keyrouz.  She's proficient in many Rites.

I once purchased Marcel Peres' Chants de L'Eglise Milanaise, different from other Ambrosian chants in that it is performed as the director thinks it sounded like in the first millenium.  Ergo, an Eastern influence is observed, and to my surprise and delight, by voice recognition, I found out that amongst the members of Ensemble Organum was Sr. Marie Keyrouz.  And I must say I was stunned by her good pronunciation of Latin (which is why I had some doubts it was her).  Arabs are not known for proficiency in their phonetic grasp of that language (French on the other, is another matter; they tend to be excellent in that area).

Her performance, needless to say, was beautiful.  She added a strong Antiochian element to the chant.
