O Rex Gentium | 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 Rex Gentium, et desideratus earum,
lapisque angularis, qui facis utraque unum:
veni, et salva hominem,
quem de limo formasti.

English:
O King of the nations, and their desire,
the cornerstone making both one:
Come and save the human race,
which you fashioned from clay.
