INTRODUCTIONToday's bumper music is the traditional Advent hymn, O Come, O Come, Emmanuel. The lyrics for this hymn come from the "O Antiphons," an early Latin hymn.
Here is our Advent wreath, and in the center is the candelabra that we use to observe the O Antiphons for seven nights, beginning December 17th.

Here is me with my wonderful son Teddy after the University of Michigan Men's Glee Club Fall Concert at Hill Auditorium in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He sings bass.
