Nostos Algos und Wachet Auf



I haven't heard this song since I was a little kid in the Cathedral during Mass...in those days, it was Latin Mass...this song strikes me this morning deeply with a sense of loss, beauty and nostalgia: "The word is a learned formation of a Greek compound, consisting of νόστος (nóstos), meaning "homecoming", a Homeric word, and ἄλγος (álgos), meaning "pain, ache"."
