Veni Emmanuel: Chant and Polyphony for Advent and Christmas

The seven “O” Antiphons for the Magnificat at Vespers on the days leading up to Christmas—familiar as the verses of the hymn “O Come, O Come Emmanuel”—are heard here in their original Gregorian melody, in organum (medieval improvised polyphony), woven into a five-part setting by Lionheart member Richard Porterfield, and in settings by Arvo Pärt. These mystical verses are presented with two Renaissance settings of the Magnificat. Along with motets by Morales, Francisco Guerrero, and Tomás Luis de Victoria, these works lead the listener from the penitent expectation of Advent to the joyful fulfillment of Christmas.

Tickets include Museum admission.
