Liturgy is an established pattern or form for the worship of God by God’s people. The liturgy leads us in the remembrance of God’s mighty acts and unites us in grateful response. Anglicans worship with a structured liturgy because it embodies biblical patterns of worship, fosters reverence and love for God, deepens faith in Jesus Christ, and is in continuity with the practices of Israel and the Early Church. (Exodus 15:1–21; Psalm 118; Luke 22:14–20; 1 Corinthians 11:23–26; Numbers 6:22–27; Deuteronomy 12:8–14; Psalm 96; Acts 2:42–47; Revelation 15; Didache 8–10)

Great Advent Antiphons

The Great Advent Antiphons are said at Evensong from the 16th of December to the 23rd of December. These Antiphons are the basis of J.M. Neale’s famous Hymn O Come, O Come, Emmanuel which may also be sung at Matins or by families on those days.

Translated J.M. Neale (1861), H.S. Coffin (1916), & M. Brench (2017).

Classic sources for the explication and elucidation of scriptural doctrine include … Music and hymnody. Hymns, from writers like Isaac Watts, Charles Wesley, John Mason Neale, and Graham Kendrick, have formed the spirituality of English-speaking Anglicans around the world. Today, composers in many languages continue in this powerful tradition of catechesis through music.
