Ave verum corpus

author of text
Hymn to the Blessed Sacrament, Corpus Christi

Ave verum corpus dates from the 14th century and remains one of the most commonly heard Latin texts heard today. It tells of Jesus’ presence in the sacrament of the Eucharist. Parry’s setting advances gently; allowing progress through the text and momentary reflection. Its simplicity refuses banality and singers need a key ear for intonation.
