Rorate Caeil Mass

Rorate coeli (or Rorate caeli), from the Book of Isaiah (Isaiah 45:8) in the Vulgate, are the opening words of a text used in the Mass during Advent. It is also known as The Advent Prose or by the first words of its English translation, "Drop down ye heavens from above." The Rorate Mass is a Votive Mass in honor of the Virgin Mary for the season of Advent. It has a long tradition in the Catholic Church, especially in German-speaking areas. The Masses had to begin relatively early in the morning when it was still dark due to winter-time and were said by candlelight.
