O Antiphons – Malcolm Guite

December 16, 2019



In Malcolm Guite’s excellent book –  Waiting on the Word – a collection of poems for each day for Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany, he includes a most extraordinary series of Antiphons. Antiphons were ancient poems written in the first centuries of the Church for reading in Advent. Malcolm’s poems are a fresh response to those ancient beauties and bring a living immediacy to these prayers of longing and waiting. These are among my favourites of all Malcolm Guite’s work. He has recorded his reading of each of these and those recordings can be listened to on his site, here.  





The O Antiphon series is written by Rev Malcolm Guite. 

For more information about these prayers and his recordings of them, link to Malcolm Guite’s website

To read more about Waiting on the Word, Malcolm Guite gives an excellent interview here.
