Veni Veni Emmanuel

Our last few blogposts have been rather light on music.  No, this has not been a result of over-zealous Advent penitence, but rather just a function of the topics under consideration recently.  Time to remedy the situation. 

Over the next 7 days (as from tomorrow evening), we will post the O Antiphon of the day on the blog.  We will include the text in Latin and English, as well as let you hear the chant being sung. 

Before that though, for today here is the hymn that synthesises the seven O Antiphons.  We have included a Latin setting, as well as the version in English so beloved of Anglican Carol Services.
