The "O Antiphons" provide a wonderful source of meditation to help prepare us for the Nativity. Traditionally chanted before and after the Magnificat in Evening Prayer during the last week of Advent, they help connect Old Testament prophecy to the Messiah born in a manger. Listen first to this wonderful introduction by Ken Myers of Mars Hill Audio:
Earth & Altar is dedicated to serving the traditional Anglican community. It is curated by clergy at All Saints Anglican Church in Charlottesville, Virginia, but relies upon the insights and resources of the faithful people in the historic Anglican tradition.
The name Earth & Altar comes from a hymn written by G. K. Chesterton. Find it here.
