Midwinter: time for another antiphon

Winter-Solstice-Coloring-Page hi resThe Anglican chant for today is O Rex Gentium (“O King of the Nations”), so here is a quality recording by Cantarte Regensburg, an “ensemble of 14 male vocalists formed in 1991 based upon the idea of former cathedral choir and church music director Hubert Velten.  Velten (1938-2010) is the former director of the Academy of Catholic Church Music and Music Education in Regensburg.”

If you missed some of the earlier Great Antiphons, the whole set is here, but based on the dates of the Roman Catholic liturgical season.
