O Rex gentium
author of text
Great Antiphon for 22 December

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
On 22 December, O Rex gentium (‘O King of all nations’) was intoned by the Plumber, a ‘lead worker’, Mary Berry explains, who ‘seems to have been frequently dispensed from community activities, but among his other duties he was in charge of the coffin for funerals’.
