The Marian Antiphons: Alma Redemptoris Mater
There are four antiphons that are chanted in honor of Our Blessed Mother throughout the year. These antiphons are assigned to be sung at the end of the Church’s night prayer each day, but they may also be sung at other times. The chants are beautiful and the texts invoke the intercession of Our Blessed Mother.
Here at Saint Mary’s we have been using the Marian antiphons as a way to honor Our Lady and ask for her powerful prayers. The current Marian antiphon is “Alma Redemptoris Mater” and is used from the beginning of Advent until the Feast of the Purification on February 2nd.
A video of the antiphon can be found below to help you learn to sing this beautiful chant in honor of our Mother and our Queen.
Here is a translation of the text:
Loving Mother of our Redeemer, thou gate leading to Heaven and star of the sea; help thy fallen people striving to rise again; thou who, all nature wondering, didst give birth to thy holy Creator. Virgin before and after receiving that greeting from the mouth of Gabriel, take pity on us sinners.
