The Marian antiphon for Advent through Feb 2nd is Alma Redemptoris Mater.
Here is a performance of the chant:

HERE is a pronunciation guide.
Below is the translation. It is a beautiful text!
“Loving mother of the Redeemer,
gate of heaven, star of the sea,
assist your people who have fallen yet strive to rise again.
To the wonderment of nature you bore your Creator,
yet remained a virgin after as before.
You who received Gabriel’s joyful greeting,
have pity on us poor sinners.”
