Today is the first Sunday in Advent.
Arvo Pärt: O Adonai
Zero8 Chorus

From the YouTube page:
Today we continue celebrating advent with one if the Great Advent Antiphons, O Adonai. Much like O Emmanuel, or Veni Emmanuel as many of us know it by, it celebrates the coming of the Lord. This version in German was composed by Arvo Pärt.
Please enjoy!

I think this works for today:

Giovanni Croce: Buccinate in Neomenia


Buccinate in neomenia tuba, In insigni die solemnitatis vestrae.
In voce exultationis, in voce tubae corneae, exultate Deo adjutori nostro.

Jubilemus/Jubilate Deo in chordis et organo, In tympano et choro.
Cantate et exultate et psallite sapienter.


Blow the trumpet when the moon is new, at the sign of your solemn feast day. Alleluia.
With a voice of rejoicing, with the sound of the trumpet, rejoice in the Lord our help. Alleluia.

Let us rejoice/Rejoice in God with strings and organ, with drum and in chorus.
Sing and rejoice and sing psalms as well as you know how.

Eleanor Daley: Upon Your Heart

Caroline Shaw: And the Sparrow
East Carolina University Chamber Singers; James Franklin, conductor

How beloved is your dwelling place,
o Lord of hosts,
my soul yearns, faints,
my heart and my flesh cry out.

The sparrow found a house,
and the swallow her nest,
where she may raise her young.

They pass through the Valley of Bakka,
they make it a place of springs;
the autumn also covers it with pools.

Daniel Elder: The Heart’s Reflection
Spira Ensemble; Kari Turunen, Conductor

As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart. ~ Proverbs 27:19

Bruckner: Locus Iste
Zurich Chamber Singers; Christian Erne, Conductor

This is the Lord’s house, which He hath made.
Profoundly sacred,
it is beyond reproof.

(from Psalm 39)
Lord, teach me that there has to be an end with me, and my life has an aim, and that I must go …
