The Brotherhood Prayer Book: New Music for Advent 2

BPB-new pictureLast week, we introduced new music for The Brotherhood Prayer Book for Advent 1. Now, we are pleased to make this newly composed and newly recorded music available for Advent 2. Using Reformation-era resources, Mr. Matthew Carver composed antiphons for the Benedictus of each week of Advent. Rev. Sean Daenzer then sang and recorded the antiphons and other propers. We thank them for their contribution to the music of the BPB!

*Please refer back to the first post for recordings of the Invitatory of the Venite, the Venite, and Responsory for Advent.
