Great “O” Antiphons – O Adonai – Dec. 19th

O-Antiphons-Slide12The key word for December 19th is Adonai, the Hebrew word for Lord, for which the Latin and Greek equivalent is Kyrie.  This is the second of seven presentations leading up to Christmas Eve based on the 12th C. celebration of the Roman Catholic Church augmented with pictures, music and Scripture readings.   It was recorded in 2015 A.D.

The hymn for today’s presentation is The King of Glory Comes, written by Willard Francis Jabusch in 1966 A.D.  Here it is sung by Mr. Jared Haselbarth, whose music is available at  The hymn is arranged to a Hebrew folk tune to which Fr. Jabusch set wonderful Christian lyrics.    I hope you like it.

Tomorrow’s key words will be O Radix Jesse (Root of Jesse).
