Panis angelicus

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

With Panis angelicus we stay with music appropriate to Corpus Christi Day, since the words are from the penultimate strophe of the matins hymn Sacris Solemniis, written by St Thomas Aquinas specifically for the feast of Corpus Christi. Franck set these words as a duet in 1872 and interpolated his Panis angelicus as a communion anthem between the Sanctus and the Agnus Dei of the Messe à trois voix, which he had written twelve years earlier.
