The 26 Days of Advent: 12/13/15

Light the third candle for tis the third Sunday of Advent or Gaudete Sunday.

Now my Latin is a little rusty (or rather non-existent), but I believe there is a line in (the third example of) today’s Advent hymn that invokes this.

Gaude! Gaude! Emmanuel,
Nascetur pro te, Israel!”

From the word for “rejoice,” as per the hymn’s translation.

This Sunday’s rendition comes from the Robert Shaw Chamber Singers.

I wish I could sing acapella so well (a…  Sorry.  it was too easy of a pun to make).
