The Great O Antiphons are sung at Vespers in the final days of Advent leading up to Christmas. From the sixteenth century to the present day,
composers have responded to these mysterious texts and plainsong in a thrilling variety of ways.
Roderick Williams’s O Adonai will be sung by tenor Adam Tunnicliffe,
and Nico Muhly’s organ preludes will be played by organist Will Fairbairn.
