The Great “O” Antiphons seasonal video series offers not only stirring music, including a wonderful, evocative Celtic-inspired playing of O Come, O Come Emmanuel, but also graphic images from the rich artistic tradition of Christianity.  Other episodes in the series are linked from the Digital Library page.
