O Antiphon #2 - O Adonai

This second of the Great O Antiphons is also one of my compositions.  Since O Adonai utilizes the Hebrew word for "Lord" in this reminder of Jesus' place as Creator, and Lord of All I have given this folky modern chant a touch of a Jewish feel with the minor key arrangement.

Once again the "O" is emphasized as a expression of emotion in worship, and the "O" rises upward simply as an expression of our worship rising upward to the exalted Lord of Heaven.

Of course, as before, this is my first recording the song, and as I sent it to our musicians at The Gathering.
