PODCAzT 124: Advent Vespers hymn in the Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms compared

In this rapid PODCAzT I return to a hymn I dissected a few years ago in another of these audio projects, the hymn for Vespers during Advent, Conditor or Creator alme siderum, in the Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms of the Roman Rite.

I give a rapid and brutally literal translation and sing the hymns so you can hear the differences.

    That was quite interesting and most informative. BTW: I can no longer listen to O Come O Come Emanuel anymore without thinking of blue vestments.
