The Magnificat Advent Companion: eVersions Now Available

The annual booklets from Magnificat are a regular feature of my Advent and Lent observance. Just in time for the beginning of Advent this Sunday, this year;s version is now available for iPhone/iPad, Kindle, and nook for a buck. I prefer this format since it’s always with me, it’s easy to navigate, and it doesn’t add to my pile of things I’m reluctant to throw away.

The companion includes original meditations on the daily gospel reading, prayers (morning, evening, night, O Antiphons, and different seasonal prayers), blessings, “The Advent Stations,” and an article on English Christmas traditions.

The iPhone version includes recordings of Rorate Caeli and Alma Redemptoris Mater. Very nice!

    How clear are the words in the recording of the Alma Redemptoris Mater (I’m presuming it’s chant)? This is the one Compline Marian antiphon I’ve been unable to find a good, clear rendition for learning the simple chant, and I’m just not skilled enough to read it straight from notation.

    I think it’s pretty clear. It doesn’t have the notation, but it does have the words.
