Musical Plan "B"

As I had mentioned in my previous post, I look for ways to add to the content of my series of meditations on the "O" Antiphons.  This year I actually found something to use, but not in a format which would allow me to incorporate it as I need.  However, that's not to say I won't use it.

Found in a post at the Chant Cafe, here are a set of motets on these antiphons written by Marc-Antonie Charpentier, who also wrote a Mass for Christmas.  While I wish I could use these independently of each other, they are still delightful little musical nuggets.  A fedora doff to Kathleen Plum, the newest contributor at the Cafe, for finding these.
