Text: Sacred Scripture
Music: Harpa Dei

We are very happy that we can address to Our Lord Jesus Christ this cry of love, together with 12 priests from 12 countries around the world and with the accompaniment of various instruments. The Spirit cries out together with his Bride -the Church-, asking for the soon return of the King of heaven and earth.

We are especially grateful to our priest friends and to the musicians who have accompanied us in this project.

In the last few weeks, news has reached us again and again about the terrible increase in crime in Ecuador, the first country consecrated to the Heart of Jesus. In that sense, we wanted to record this meaningful song, which for the Ecuadorian people is a kind of "national religious hymn".
In the current emergency situation, we recall the prayer campaign "Break the rod of the violent" that we carried out in 2011, with visible fruits. At that time, after many people in Ecuador and in other countries joined in this prayer for a year, it was possible to see that, thanks to God, the numbers of serious crimes decreased significantly.

The current emergency situation leads us now to invite our listeners to join in this simple prayer:

Loving heavenly Father,
we come to you full of confidence,
firmly believing that you will come to the aid of the ecuadorian people.

Look at the suffering caused by violence and evil
and with your power weaken the influence of evil.
Crush the rod of the violent and take away its dominance over souls.

Give us the grace to offer spiritual resistance against evil.
Permit us to receive more sincerely the gift of faith and put it into practice.

May our prayers bring about the conversion of those who are far from you, enslaved by sin.
So that together we may recognise you, honor you and love you, as our heavenly Father.
This we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Several years ago, we learned this song from a Chinese priest in Jerusalem. As he was singing it to us for the first time, suddenly his voice broke and he started to cry. Then he told us, "The world has no idea how much we Christians suffer in China." In that sense, we have recorded and published this beautiful Marian song with the intention of praying, on the one hand, for our Chinese Christian brothers and sisters persecuted because of their faith and, on the other hand, for so many millions of them who have not yet received the light of the Gospel.

At the beginning of the 17th century, relatives of Father Jeronimos started to have problems in their marriage. As they reached the point of separation, they went to see Father Jacob, known by his strong devotion to Mary and his gift of wise spiritual counsel. After a month of prayer, the Blessed Virgin Mary intervened and the couple was able to save their marriage.

As an act of thanksgiving, Father Jeronimos ordered a picture to be painted, representing the Virgin Mary untying knots of a wedding band.

The devotion to Maria Knotenlöserin (Mary untying knots) and her miraculous help in various problems, from broken marriages to terminal cancer, has spread all around the world, especially to Argentina and Brazil, thanks to the missionary work of Father Jorge Bergoglio (Pope Francis).

Today, the original painting is located in the Church of Saint Peter am Perlach in Augsburg, Germany.

⁣Hymn of St. Bonaventure (13th century) to the Sacred Heart of Jesus:

O Heart, Thou ark containing the Law,
not of the old servitude,
but of grace, and indulgence,
and also of mercy.

O Heart, Thou spotless sanctuary of the new covenant,
Thou Temple, holier than the ancient one,
And Veil, more profitable
than that torn of old.

Charity willed Thee to be wounded;
by the spear thrust opened,
that we might venerate
the wounds of an invisible love.

Under this symbol of love,
having suffered bloody and mystical torments,
Christ the Priest offered
each in sacrifice.

Who would not love in turn
the One so loving him?
Who, being thus redeemed, would not love,
and choose eternal dwellings in this Heart?

O Jesus, to Thee be glory,
Who pourest grace from Thy heart,
with the Father and the loving Spirit
unto everlasting ages. Amen.

⁣This hymn is attributed to Pope St. Gregory the Great (540-604) and its use begins at that time. It is used at Vespers from the first Sunday of Lent until the Friday before Passion Sunday, both on Sundays and feast days.

AUDI, benigne Conditor,
nostras preces cum fletibus,
sacrata in abstinentia
fusas quadragenaria.

Scrutator alme cordium,
infirma tu scis virium;
ad te reversis exhibe
remissionis gratiam.

Multum quidem peccavimus,
sed parce confitentibus,
tuique laude nominis
confer medelam languidis.

Sic corpus extra conteri
dona per abstinentiam,
ieiunet ut mens sobria
a labe prorsus criminum.

Praesta, beata Trinitas,
concede, simplex Unitas,
ut fructuosa sint tuis
haec parcitatis munera. Amen.

⁣The "Alma Redemptoris Mater" is one of the four Marian Antiphons sung at the end of the liturgy of the hours. Its author is believed to be Hermannus Contractus ("Herman the Lame"; 1013-1054). It is traditionally sung after the recitation of Compline from the first Sunday of Advent until the Feast of Candlemas or Feast of the Purification of the Virgin (2 February)

Alma Redemptoris Mater, quæ pervia cæli
Porta manes, et stella maris, succurre cadenti,
Surgere qui curat, populo: tu quæ genuisti,
Natura mirante, tuum sanctum Genitorem
Virgo prius prius ac posterius, Gabrielis ab ore
Sumens illud Ave, peccatorum miserere.

Loving Mother of the Redeemer,
who remains the accessible Gateway of Heaven,
and Star of the Sea,
Give aid to a falling people
that strives to rise;
O Thou who begot thy holy Creator,
while all nature marvelled,
Virgin before and after
receiving that "Ave" from the mouth of Gabriel,
have mercy on sinners.

⁣The village of Nazareth was the place chosen by the Heavenly Father, in His love, for the announcement of the Archangel Gabriel to resound there, which would transform the whole of human history. The long-awaited Messiah would come to this world to redeem humanity. And the Virgin Mary was the one whom the Lord was pleased to look upon and who proved worthy of His choice: to be the Mother of the Son of God.

In this video filmed in Nazareth, Harpa Dei intones the Tractus (a chant sung before the Gospel during penitential seasons) for the Feast of the Archangel Gabriel, which, in the traditional calendar, is celebrated on 24 March, on the eve of the Solemnity of the Annunciation.

English translation:

Hail, Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee
Blessed art thou among women
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.
Behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb,
and bring forth a son, and shalt call His name Emmanuel.
How, asked she, can this come about, since I have no knowledge of man?
And the angel answered and said unto her:
The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee and the power of the Most High shall overshadow thee.
Therefore the child to be born will be holy and will be called Son of God.

Text in Latin:

Ave Maria, gratia plena,
Dominus tecum;
benedicta tu in mulieribus,
et benedictus est fructus ventris tui.
Ecce concipies et paries filium,
et vocabis nomen eius Emmanuel
Quomodo, inquit, fiet istud,
quoniam virum non cognosco?
Et respondens Angelus dixit ei:
Spiritus Domini superveniet in te
et virtus Altissimi obumbrabit tibi.

⁣Ave, maris stella,
Dei mater alma
atque semper virgo,
felix caeli porta.

Sumens illud „Ave“
Gabrielis ore,
funda nos in pace,
mutans Evae nomen.

Solve vincla reis,
profer lumen caecis,
mala nostra pelle,
bona cuncta posce.

Monstra te esse matrem,
sumat per te precem
qui pro nobis natus
tulit esse tuus.

Virgo singularis,
inter omnes mitis,
nos culpis solutos
mites fac et castos.

Vitam praesta puram,
iter para tutum,
ut videntes Jesum
semper collaetemur.

Sit laus Deo Patri,
summo Christo decus,
Spiritui Sancto
honor, tribus unus.

Este himno fuer cantado especialmente para la campaña de oración en México, como arma espiritual contra el mal de la violencia. Nova Bella (una nueva guerra), se refiere a las luchas espirituales, ya que el mal debe ser vencido con nuestro Señor con la verdad y el amor. El himno en latín está dedicado a Santa Juana de Arco y debe continuar sirviendo contra la violencia en todas las partes del mundo!

This piece was especially sung during the prayer-campaign in Mexiko as a spiritual wapon against the evil of violence. Nova Bella (New wars) means spiritual wars, because the evil should be overcome through our Lord by truth and love! The song in Latin is dedicated to Ste. Jeanne d'Arc (Joan of Arc) and should continue to serve against violence in all parts of the world!

This song is coming out of the wonderful byzantine tradition. It is a great joy and honor for the choir "Harpa Dei" to connect this holy music with Jerusalem, this unique and most Holy City.
Harpa Dei is a little choir of two sisters and one brother in blood and spirit. They are living in the tradition of the community Agnus Dei performing especially Musica Sacra from different parts of the world. This video is their first attempt to show the beauty of the Musica sacra through a videoclip.
