Fr. Jim Tucker at Dappled Things
has an audio post
of himself singing the antiphon O Sapientia
in a fine baritone voice with excellent Latin pronunciation. Here are the words of the antiphon:
O Sapientia, quae ex ore Altissimi prodisti, attingens a fine usque ad finem, fortiter suaviter disponensque omnia: veni docendum nos viam prudentiae.
O Wisdom, which camest out of the mouth of the most High, and reachest from one end to another, mightily and sweetly ordering all things: Come and teach us the way of prudence.
If you're unlucky and music at your parish runs more to the banal ditties of Haugen and Haas
, you might welcome, as I did, this chance to hear some real chant. Let's hope that Fr. Tucker favors us with some more now and then.
