Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
O quam suavis est, Domine is a glowing and warm expression of the words honouring the sweet sacrament of Communion. The six voices weave a rich harmonic texture but they each retain considerable individuality. Notice especially at the end how Lobo makes voice after voice climb gently through the others.
