Sapientia-tide


Christmas is getting closer. Yesterday was Gaudete Sunday and tonight the "O" antiphons begin at Vespers. I couldn't get my Solesmes notation Liber to lie flat enough to scan so this is the modern notation from an old French Liber. It should sing the same way.

The antiphon in English:

O Wisdom, which camest out of the mouth of the Most High, and reachest from one end to another, mightily and sweetly ordering all things: Come and teach us the way of prudence.
