Slavonic Sub Tuum by Dominican Students of St. Albert the Great Priory, Oakland CA

Here at St. Albert the Great Priory in Oakland CA, the community sings the Sub Tuum in Dominican Gregorian chant after every Saturday morning Mass.

Inspired by a Ukrainian brother who was recently ordained a bi-ritual priest, the brothers learned this Slavonic version of the hymn based on a 17th-century Polish melody. As we await the Purification of Our Lady on February 2, I thought our readers might enjoy this chant.
