The O Antiphons
As we wait and prepare for the coming of Christ, each night, from December 16th until the 23rd, we will be be posting a special series of the O Antiphons, sung by members of the Altar Egos and pictured with ancient styled manuscripts.
The O Antiphons are an ancient Advent tradition and originally started out with 7 antiphons. The Church of England created an 8th antiphon which, while popular in its day, is no longer often used. These Antiphons are typically sung during Vespers in the week leading up to Christmas. We hope you enjoy.
