1 Alleluia  
Album Release Interview

Taking a fresh approach to singing "Alleluia" -- one of the most well recognized and universal chants in the world -- the classically-trained duo, Shunia, adds layers of depth with the 23rd Psalm performed in Latin as well as Gregorian chant and global instruments. Beautiful, yet haunting, Shunia's "Alleluia" is another unique yet timeless offering that is perfect for the season of lights. 

 

Lyrics:

Alleluia 

Dominus regit me, et nihil mihi deerit: in loco pascuæ, ibi me collocavit. 

Super aquam refectionis educavit me; animam meam convertit. 

Deduxit me super semitas justitiæ propter nomen suum. 

Nam etsi ambulavero in medio umbræ mortis, non timebo mala, quoniam tu

mecum es. 

Virga tua, et baculus tuus, ipsa me consolata sunt. 

 - 23.Psalm
