The Great "O Antiphons"

Well, here we are. It's the 17th of December and it's time for the Great Os to begin. And so I give you the synthesis of them all in this truly stunning and luminous performance:

This is the arrangement by Zoltán Kodály

  2. Well, Br. James, here's what's on the orginal site:

    L'Accorche-Choeur, Ensemble vocal Fribourg

    I'll try doing a search on that and see if I can track down the actual recording.

    By the way, if you don't know this, you can always double click on any embedded YouTube video and it will take you to the original YouTube site!

    Peace be with you, Ellie! My eyes were leaking as I listened to the magnificent message sung by a near heavenly choir. Thank you!

  4. Yes, I was truly glad to have found that myself, Gpa Don. I'm glad it was so moving to you.
