O sacrum convivium
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
O sacrum convivium (1570) is for six-part choir with a low emphasis (SAATBB). This is a richly woven tapestry of sound depicting the sacred banquet of Communion. The whole post-Reformation Catholic devotion to this sacrament seems embodied in this rapt and sustained inspiration.
