O – The O Antiphons

In 2015, Fr Alan brought together members of the congregation and choir – Thomas Hyde, composer, Clare McCaldin, mezzo-soprano, and Cheyney Kent, bass – along with Stevie Farr, Director of Music, Michael Papadopoulos, Assistant Director of Music, the St Paul’s choir and choreographer Hubert Essakow to create a work of music, song and dance in an interpretation of The O Antiphons of Advent.

O was performed at St Paul’s Knightsbridge on 29 November 2015, Advent Sunday, to great acclaim.

Scroll down this page to find a series of films, under the title O – The O Antiphons, which record the creation of the work. Further films will be added in the weeks after the performance on 29 November, so do keep watching.
