This kolyadka for the Christmas season is matched with postcards of the late Imperial period. The Novokuznetsk Spiritual Seminary Choir from Siberia sings it.

One of our Russian kolyadki is matched with contemporary photos of Orthodox Chrisitians at prayer and feasting. My intent was to “enflesh” Orthodox life, both our worship and our celebrations. The final image is “The Nativity of Christ” by the contemporary Russian artist Pavel Popov. The first image is the cathedral at Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville NY during the winter Christmas season.
