Russian Kontakion


Sung in The Funeral of The Duke of Edinburgh (youtube)


All sit as the choir sings
THE ANTHEM

GIVE rest, O Christ,
to thy servant with thy Saints:
where sorrow and pain are no more;
neither sighing, but life everlasting.
Thou only art immortal,
the Creator and Maker of man:
And we are mortal, formed of the earth,
and unto earth shall we return.
For so thou didst ordain,
when thou createdest me, saying,
Dust thou art,
and unto dust shalt thou return.
All we go down to the dust;
and, weeping, o’er the grave,
we make our song:
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia.

Russian Kontakion of the Departed
Translated William John Birkbeck (1859–1916)
Kiev Melody, arranged by Sir Walter Parratt, KCVO (1841–1924)

冷冷的黑


商禽《應》

用不著推窗而起
向冷冷的黑
拋出我長長的嘶喊

熄去室內的燈
應之以方方的黯


問題:
(1) 結果有沒有「拋出長長的嘶喊」?
(2) 應之以方方的黯, 「之」是指甚麼 ?
(3) 何以黯會「方方」的?



答案: 無, 冷冷的黑, 由於窗框

How to enslave people

From the Nuremberg Trial (1945) Hermann Goering to the question ``How did you convince the German people to accept all this?'', he replied:

``It was easy and has nothing to do with Nazism. The only thing you need to do to enslave people is to fear them. If you can think of a way to scare people, you can do anything to them.''

And here we are!
