Great “O” Antiphons – O Emmanuel – Dec. 24th

The final Great “O” Antiphon episode is here, with O Emmanuel for Dec. 24th.  Many of Christianity’s problems in the modern world are owed to the Church’s reluctance to teach the kind of faith that generated the Great “O” Antiphons in the 12th C.  The hymn for today is, of course, O Come, O Come, Emmanuel, sung by soloist Jared Haselbarth.  Mr. Haselbarth’s music is available in a boxed set of DVDs from nab audio.com.

For this occasion, I’ve integrated the Christmas Eve program from my former parish into the traditional wording.  For interested listeners/viewers the hauntingly evocative theme music for the series was purchased from a vendor who identifies the artist as Ricky Theory.

Watch the Video.      Listen to the Podcast

Later today I will post Lessons & Carols for Christmas Eve, an electronic version of the classic Christmas Eve service offered by nearly every Anglican parish everywhere but made available here for a wider audience.  The program leads into another series, The Twelve Days of Christmas, with a theme word or phrase for each day from Christmas Day to Epiphany Eve.
