Panis angelicus

author of text
from Sacris solemniis; for the Feast of Corpus Christi

In its typical blend of devotion and sensuality, César Franck’s Panis angelicus fits the description given to the Mass for 3 voices by Franck’s devoted pupil Vincent d’Indy: ‘…a curious dream, half mystic, half secular’. Franck’s balancing of phrases in this piece dealing with the Blessed Sacrament is certainly achieved with skill; in addition, his use of canon between soloist and chorus at the reprise is a personal hallmark seen also in the finale of his violin sonata in the same key. This piece originally featured the atmospheric combination of organ, cello and harp.
