I've decided (a trifle belatedly) to post the Great Antiphons as we approach Christmas. These Antiphons are said with the Magnificat at Vespers for the seven days before Christmas Eve.
As you'll note, they form the basis for the classic Advent hymn O Come, O Come Emmanuel. I'll put up the new one each day.
I've taken these from the Monastic Diurnal, a Benedictine breviary predating the reform of the Hours, published by St. Michael's Abbey Press.
