Plainchant: O Radix Jesse

PlainchantO Radix Jesse is the third of the great “O” antiphons. It is indicated to be sung with the Magnificat closing second Vespers of 19 December.

O Radix Jesse, qui stas in signum populorum,super quem continebunt reges os suum,quem Gentes deprecabuntur:veni ad liberandum nos, jam noli tardare.

(O Root of Jesse, standing as a sign among the peoples;before you kings will shut their mouths,to you the nations will make their prayer:Come and deliver us, and delay no longer.)
