O Antiphon Sonnets
Some of you have inquired about the sonnets we used in worship on Sunday Dec. 1. They are by Malcolm Guite and published in his Sounding the Seasons: Poetry for the Christian Year (Norwich: Canterbury Press, 2012). They have also been anthologized in Penguin’s Best Spiritual Writing 2013 (ed. Philip Zaleski).
Sounding the Seasons contains seventy poems, each on texts read in Sunday worship. In addition to books of poetry, Guite has published “a series of critical appreciations of English poetry” titled, Faith, Hope and Poetry: Theology and the Poetic Imagination (Ashgate, 2012).
Guite is Chaplain of Girton College, Cambridge. A priest, performance poet and singer/songwriter, he lectures widely on poetry and theology in Britain and the US. You can read more about the Antiphon sonnets and ways they have been further adapted by musicians and others at www.malcolmguite.wordpress.com/blog.
