O quam suavis est, Domine

composer

Antiphon for the Feast of Corpus Christi; Wisdom 12: 1, 16:21

 
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.

from notes by Bruno Turner © 1985

O quam suavis est, Domine traduit avec éclat et chaleur les mots honorant le doux sacrement de la Communion. Les six voix tissent une riche texture harmonique tout en conservant chacune une immense singularité. Remarquez surtout comment, à la fin, Lobo fait se hisser les voix les unes après les autres.

Français: Hypérion

O quam suavis est, Domine ist ein leuchtender und warmer Ausdruck der Worte, die das süße Sakrament des Abendmahls ehren. Die sechs Stimmen verbinden sich zu einem reichhaltigen harmonischen Klanggewebe, wobei sie jedoch ebenfalls ein beachtliches Maß an Individualität beibehalten. Besonders bemerkenswert ist das Ende, wo Lobo jede Stimme behutsam durch die anderen hindurch führt.
