O-Antiphons-Slide55Join us for today’s Great “O” Antiphons observation for December 23rd, when the key words are O Rex Gentium, or King of Nations.  This presentation was adapted, with illustrations and music, from the original 12th C. office.

Today’s hymn is The Coming of Our God by Charles Coffin, circa 1736 A.D.  In the St. Chrysostom Hymnal the same hymn (Advent Hymn No. 4)  is titled The Advent of Our King.  The soloist is Mr. Jared Haselbarth, whose music catalogue is available at  This and other teaching and worship videos are linked from the Digital Library page on this site.

Tomorrow there will be links to both the office for Dec. 24th, O Emmanuel, and also the AIC Seasonal Video, Lessons and Carols for Christmas Eve.

The AIC urges you to attend a local Church for Holy Communion on Sunday, Dec. 24th, and, if available, a local Lessons and Carols service.  Our version of Lessons and Carols is available 24/7 via the Web.
