Continuing on the theme of sharing beautiful music for the Advent season, here’s one of my favorites. I actually heard this at the end of the high Mass this morning as the priest and servers processed out of the sanctuary and it sounded magnificent. This version, recorded by the Benedictine Sisters of Mary, Queen of Apostles, although not my absolute favorite, is still a gorgeous arrangement of a beautiful hymn in the English choral tradition (even if the tune is the French Besancon carol).
O Come, Divine Messiah! The world in silence waits the day when hope shall see her triumph and sadness flee away.
