Catholic Hymn "Abie Jesu, Oyemwen Nó" Words And Translation by midnighter(f): 11:07pm On Nov 26, 2019
I really love this song (and the way the choir performed it), and would love to know what it means.

Could anybody write down the lyrics and translate them? I guess it's in Bini language, but I'm not really sure.

Yes, this is a Benin song commemorating the birth of Jesus.

Powerful rendition.

"Abie Jesu,Oyemwen nó so oyemwen no"

"The birth of Jesus, more than gladdens."

Dear Midnighter,as someone who has enjoyed your contributions and posts to issues on naira land,I find it incumbent to advice that you quit the line of debate on the thread between that guy nd his ex. you are expending too much energy trying g to buttress your point . you already made your point please discontinue your line of argument. Trust me this is an advice and its coming from someone who holds you in high regard.
Meanwhile are you a catholic/chorister ?i ask because only aChorister would appreciate this kind of music.

Lol thank you, I assure you that I am not expending much energy at all.

They are quoting and arguing with me and then when I give them my answer they start looking ways to go outside of the point and discredit it by being facile. That guy has been quoting me off point since yesterday, when you answer him now he gets annoyed.

But thank you for your concern, I will henceforth try to ignore them unless some other new info comes up.

No, I am not a chorister, I just enjoy the soothing nature of the music. Are you?

Yes I am and have been for more than 20 years although work life has made it nearly impossible to keep up in the last few years, I still find time to join them whenever I can. You should try to join a choral group,i am sure you would enjoy it when you do.

I was in one before but not a classical one like this. It was more of gospel.

Do you have to study music to do these kinds of songs?

No ,and I didnt study music either,I've just been a chorister for as long as I can remember.
First step is joining a choral group preferably a standard choir in a parish not all those praise and worship groups who are more interested in the sounds of their musical instrument.....lol. The choir master will listen to you sing and advice which part of the choir you should join (ladies usually sing Treble/soprano or Alto).Subsequently you begin to learn your solfa notes and notations and who knows someday you could be a great composer and be writing songs that will feature in the next FILM competition.
That rendition was probably at FILM 2019 which was held in Abuja a few weeks ago.

You should give singing a try,it could make a great lover out of you.

Is the bolded an "audition"? I once mailed a choir and they said something about an audition. But that means you could be rejected right?

Yes, this video is from Film. Apparently unibens choir is one of the best

FILM is an acronym for Forum for inculturation of liturgical music. It is not an audition ,rather some sort of (for lack of a better word) competition amongst catholic choir groups in Nigerian Universities. They are expected to write and present native maiden songs at the festival and are usually graded based on their performance.

The thought of been auditioned sounds funny to me. How good is that choir that will have to subject an interested prospect to auditioning,was it a secular group?Some people too do sef,i mean we all started from somewhere ,besides for me its an opportunity to serve God in church .In any case i dont think your voice will be that bad for you to fail an audition (if thats what you are scared of..lol) even if you were to be subjected to that and the other things you can pick and learn as you proceed.

Uni Ben have always had a good choir but you should listen to my former school choir sing to your hearing.
