About

Seven meditations for Advent, with reference to John the Baptist, punctuated with plainchant. Advent, the four weeks or so leading up to Christmas, has traditionally been a time to ponder on what it means to say Christ is coming. The meditations here reflect on that coming, not only His coming to earth at Bethlehem long ago, but also His continuous coming, His presence in the Church at all times, as well as His final coming at the end of our lives, at the end of time.

The chant was recorded in the Oratory Church in Oxford by Fr Anton Webb and Fr Guy Nichols, who both sang with Mary Berry at Cambridge in the famous Schola Cantorum, with the assistance of Wilfrid Jones, choral scholar of New College, Oxford. The meditations are by Fr Jerome Bertram of the Oxford Oratory.
