Rejoice, Rejoice: Dent Davidson on the Great O Antiphons
The much loved Advent hymn “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” is based off of a set of antiphons historically used with the Magnificat (Song of Mary) at evening services in the week leading up to Christmas. The antiphons, often known as the Great “O” Antiphons, address different attributes of the Christ who is coming. Join Interim Director of Emerging Liturgy and Music Dent Davidson for a reflective session in which we will hear the ancient chants of each antiphon in Latin, interspersed with 20th century English choral settings, poetry and symbol, to explore ways in which we can enrich our observance of Advent, the season of expectation.
