Wo, wo, wo ?

My favorite nativity paintings are those of Giotto Bondone ( ca 1300)

(wo,wo,wo means where, where, where – from the text of the attached christmas cantata)

Giotto di Bondone (1266 - 1337)

Michael Praetorius, In natali Domini

In natali Domini
clamant mortales ex singuli:
Wo ist uns ein Kind geborn?
Zu Bethlehem ist uns geborn ein Kindelein.
Wo, wo, wo ist uns ein Kind geborn?
Zu Bethlehem ist uns geborn ein Kindelein
gewinden in ein Tuechelein.
Jesus ist der Name sein.

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
