Mixed voices a cappella

This lovely setting of St Thomas Aquinas’s famous Corpus Christi text will be useful all year round for church choirs which like to perform unaccompanied motets during the administration of Holy Communion.

With its independently moving parts, gentle chromaticism and slow, lilting 5/4 metre, it is a calming evocation of the mystery of the sacrament. In the second verse, the soprano line escapes upwards as if in aspiration for heaven to which the sacrament leads us.
