A Christmas Greeting from All at Euromaidan Press

2014/12/27 • Culture, Featured

Dear Readers,
On this day when many of you celebrate Christmas, we wish for you the joy that overcomes sorrow, the good that overcomes all evil, and the courage to lift up hope for tomorrow after tomorrow.

We are inspired by the martyred Ukrainian composer Mykola Leontovych, who wrote the first Carol of the Bells (Shchedryk) in 1904. He did this by synthesizing Ukrainian folk chants and classical styles, which was unheard of at the time. He also wrote the first common language Ukrainian liturgy. His achievements provided all Ukrainians with powerful tools of identity that still inspire after more than a hundred years!

Hark how the bells of freedom ring without end!
