Veni Emmanuel: Music for Advent


The familiar hymn Veni Emmanuel is emblematic of the Advent season: a period of reflection upon the meaning of Christ's coming. Framing this programme, the hymn paraphrases the great "O" Antiphons (plainchant settings traditionally sung on the days leading up to Christmas), complemented here by later works echoing their rich imagery and symbolism.

Emblématique de l'Avent, période de recueillement et de réflexion sur le sens de la venue du Christ, l'hymne célèbre Veni Emmanuel encadre de ses paraphrases les grandes Antiennes "Ô" (antiennes de plain-chant traditionnellement chantées dans la semaine précédant Noël) dont la richesse poétique et symbolique inspirera plusieurs générations de compositeurs.

Das bekannte Kirchenlied Veni Emmanuelist typisch für die Adventszeit: Zeit der Besinnung auf die Bedeutung des Erscheinens Christi auf Erden. Das Lied, das dieses Programm umrahmt, paraphrasiert die O-Antiphonen (Choralvertonungen, die traditionell an den letzten sieben Tagen vor Weihnachten gesungen werden) und wird durch Werke neuerer Zeit ergänzt, die die kraftvolle Metaphorik und Symbolik der Antiphonen nachbilden.
