O salutaris hostia

1880; published in Cary's Modern Church Music for Catholic Choirs, 1888
author of text
Antiphon for the Feast of Corpus Christi

One of three settings of these words, this strophic setting of a Gregorian hymn was made for service use at St George’s, and is perhaps reassuring to us of the choral standard they achieved.

Cette mise en musique strophique d’une hymne grégorienne—un des trois O salutaris hostia elgariens—fut écrite pour un usage liturgique à Saint George, et nous rassure peut-être quant au niveau atteint par ce chœur.

Dieser strophische Satz einer gregorianischen Hymne—eine von drei Vertonungen dieser Worte—entstand für den Gebrauch im Gottesdienst an der St. Georgskirche, und versichert uns des Niveaus, das der Chor erreicht hatte.
