Pange lingua Corporis

author of text
Processional for the Feast of Corpus Christi

The eucharistic text of Pange lingua gloriosi Corporis mysterium was written in 1263 by the Italian scholar-priest St Thomas Aquinas at the request of the Pope to fit the melody of Pange lingua gloriosi proelium certaminis, Venantius Fortunatus’s famous sixth-century hymn in honour of the Cross. The melody was used by Holst in The Hymn of Jesus and by Charles Wood (to its original text) in his St Mark Passion.
