Hymn: Gratias Deae – “Thanks, Gods”

Di benedicaris vos.

The Sacra Flameno of the Collegio Sacerdae, Sôgmô Gaius Sörgel Publicola, has published the following hymn written in Sancta, the cultural official language of the State of Sandus. «Gratias Deae», Sancta for “Thanks, Gods”, is a hymn sung to a simple, harmonious tune and is released in celebration of the Halcyon Days, also known as the Brumalia — a winter holiday held here in the latter half of the month of Decembro (December). The Brumalia includes other important Collegio Sacerdae holidays, including the Consualia and Opalia, the Saturnalia, the Solstice, and the Dies Natalis Solis Invicti. 

The hymn predates the Leitourgía cultural project of the Office of the Sôgmô. «Gratias Deae» was originally begun in late Quintilo (July), yet consisted only of the first two lines from then until late this evening, when the Sacra Flameno set to work to complete. The Sacra Flameno shall work on a video of the tune in the next Sancta week.

The hymn can be found here.
