A Christmas hymn

Friday, January 04, 2013
For this Christmas season, the Dominican student brothers at Blackfriars, Oxford have recorded the hymn for Vespers of the Nativity: Veni, Redemptor gentium.

In the liturgy, we do not sing this hymn after the Christmas Octave, which ended on New Year's Day. But, since the Christmas season as a whole is ongoing – at least until the Epiphany (6 January), if not until the Presentation (2 February) – perhaps we can still sing or hum along to this beautiful music for the time being. And which of us could honestly claim never to have sung (or whistled!) one of countless other catchy Christmas jingles, secular or sacred, in all the other months of the year...?
