Rorate Coeli

Rorate Coeli

December 5, 2015

Known as The Advent Prose, Rorate Coeli are texts adapted from prophet Isaiah that speak to the longing of the prophets for the Messiah. “Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour forth righteousness: let the earth be fruitful, and bring forth a Saviour.” The full text is often read or sung responsively in plainsong.

“Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the Lord have created it.” ~ Isaiah 48:8
