Cantemus in omni die

for SATB choir and optional Soprano solo

“Cantemus in omni die” is a setting of a hymn to the Virgin Mary written by Cú Chuimne Sapiens, an Irish monk active at Iona by the early 8th century (died 747).  It is the earliest known Latin hymn to Mary originally composed in the Western Christian Church rather than translated into Latin from earlier sources.  This setting was commissioned by The Mornington Singers of Dublin, Ireland, Dr. Orla Flanagan, director.  It was first performed by The Mornington Singers on July 19, 2014 at St. Mary’s Pro-Cathedral, Dublin and subsequently on July 21, 2014 at St. Nicholas Collegiate Church, Galway, with the composer conducting.
