Great “O” Antiphons – O Sapienta – Dec. 18th


Today is December 18th, the first day of the seven-day cycle of The Great “O” Antiphons, which date from the Roman Catholic Church in the 12th Century.

Today’s key word is O Sapienta, Latin for wisdom.  Episodes in the series run approximately 12 minutes each.  Both video and podcast versions are available.  Includes appropriate Scripture and music.  On this episode, On Jordan’s Bank the Baptist’s Cry is sung by Mr. Jared Haselbarth.  His music is also available at  The song was written by Charles Coffin in 1736 A.D. and is still sung world-wide during Advent (as it was on Advent 3 at the Anglican Church I attended yesterday).  This version was recorded in 2015 A.D.
