O Radix Jesse | Music for Advent
Play Video

The so-called ‘O Antiphons’ are sung at Vespers on the days leading up to Christmas, before and after the beginning of the Magnificat. Ancient compositions, they weave together verses of Scripture to bring out the richness of the mystery of the Incarnation.

Latin:
O radix Jesse,
qui stas in signum populorum,
super quem continebunt reges os suum,
quem Gentes deprecabuntur:
veni ad liberandum nos, jam noli tardare.

English:
O Root of Jesse,
standing as a sign among the peoples;
before you kings will shut their mouths,
to you the nations will make their prayer:
Come and deliver us, and delay no longer.
