      Trad, arr Ross: O Come, O Come, Emmanuel (5:07)

      Choir of Clare College, Cambridge / Graham Ross

      The familiar hymn Veni Emmanuel is emblematic of the Advent season – a period of reflection upon the meaning of Christ’s coming. Framing this program by the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge, directed by Graham Ross, the hymn paraphrases the great ‘O’ Antiphons (plainchant settings traditionally sung on the days leading up to Christmas), complemented here by later works echoing their rich imagery and symbolism.
