Rorate Caeli, sometimes referred to as the Advent Prose is the perfect embodiment of the great themes of Advent.
℣ Rorate coeli desuper et nubes pluant justum
(Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain the just)
“Ne irascaris “, “Peccavimus”, “Vide Domine”, “Consolamini”, sin, penitence, waiting and expectation, comfort; it’s got the lot!
