An oldie PODCAzT about an Advent hymn.
As I wrote back then:
I decided during Advent to drill into the hymns in the Liturgia Horarum.
We begin today with the hymn for Vespers called Conditor alme siderum, with its variation Creator alme siderum as it was in Breviarium Romanum.
I ramble a bit. No… I ramble a great deal. We get into an amusing comparison of two Latin verbs… always hilarious and interesting. You Latin students will be ROFL, because that’s what Latin students do with this stuff. No. Really.
Then we get into a book that screwed up the world, by Jean Jacques Rousseau. And I talk about a book that talks about books that screwed up the world.
Sing the hymns! Buy a Liber Hymnarius!
You will hear various versions of the famous hymn along the way!
