O sacrum convivium

composer
1570; 6vv
author of text
Antiphon at Second Vespers on the feast of Corpus Christi; 1 Corinthians 11: 26, Romans 8: 18

 
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.

O sacrum convivium (1570) s’adresse à un chœur à six parties porté sur les graves (SAATBB). Cette riche tapisserie sonore dépeint le banquet sacré de la Communion et toute la dévotion catholique pour ce sacrement—nous sommes au lendemain de la Réforme—est comme enchâssée dans cette inspiration extasiée, soutenue.

Français: Hypérion

O sacrum convivium (1570) ist für sechsstimmigen Chor angelegt, wobei die tiefen Stimmen im Vordergrund stehen (SAATBB). Es handelt sich dabei um einen prächtigen Klangteppich, der das heilige Abendmahl darstellt. In diesem verzückten und anhaltenden Werk scheint die nachreformatorische katholische Hingabe zu diesem Sakrament in ihrer Gänze dargestellt zu werden.
