The Great O Antiphons

This Thursday, December 20 at 7:30 p.m., the choirs of St Paul's Cathedral, under

the direction of Mark Howe, will sing their annual Advent service of the

Great O Antiphons. Similar to a service of Lessons and Carols, this liturgy

uses old and new musical sources to illuminate biblical readings that

prophesy the coming of Jesus. The music will include Peter Hallock's setting

of the seven Great O Antiphons, as well as works by William Byrd, Ellen

Gilson Voth, Michael Fleming, and others. Festive banners designed by Judith

McManis will adorn the Nave. Come and bring a friend.
