“Veni,Veni Emmanuel” are the opening words, in Latin, of the Medievaltext translated to English as “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” by JohnMason Neale (1818-1866), with music arranged by Thomas Helmore(1811-1890), for TheHymnal Noted (London,1856). The text of this most famous of Advent hymns is taken fromvarious “‘O’ Antiphons,” verses sung or recited before andafter the Magnificat during the evening Vespers service in the lastweek of Advent. Each antiphon is a name of Christ, and together theyecho the foretelling of the long-expected Messiah by the prophetIsaiah.

Theorigin of the music is uncertain. Some claim it to be from a15th-century French processionale (hymnal,liturgical manual) for Franciscan nuns; others believe it to be ofearlier, eighth-century Gregorian plainsong origins. Both Neale andHelmore were Anglo-Catholic, and both contributed much to thereclamation and inclusion of ancient texts and chant-based hymnody tothe Church of England in the 19th century.

Thisadvanced-intermediate level arrangement is suitable for use at Advent and Christmas in concert, recital, andworship.
