    Soprano Soloist, Lusine Zakaryan (1937 - 1992), did this operatic performance of Kilikia. Nahabed Rusinian wrote Kilikia's lyrics to honor Armenia, and the Medieval Armenian Kingdom of Cilicia. Lusine Zakaryan performed spiritual music of the Armenian Church, as well as Armenian Opera music.

    Lyrics, translated into English:

    When doors of hope are opened wide,
    And dreary winter flees away,
    Our beauteous Armenia
    Beams forth in glad and smiling day;
    When swallows to their nests return
    And trees put on their leaves so bright
    I yearn for my Kilikia,
    The land where first I saw the light.

    There comes to each a time of life
    When all our hopes have gone at last,
    The poor soul longs and strives no more;
    And dwells alone upon the past;
    When my breaking harp, unstrung
    Shall sing to hope a last good-night,
    I’ll sleep in my Kilikia,
    The land where I first saw the light.
