SATB with divisi. Optional organ. In Latin, perfect for communion anytime. Another luscious motet from Thom Pavlechko with hints of Biblical epics lurking in the harmonies.
O sacrum convivium!
in quo Christus sumitur:
recolitur memoria passionis eius:
mens impletur gratia:
et futurae gloriae nobis pignus datur.
O sacred banquet!
in which Christ is received,
the memory of his Passion is renewed,
the mind is filled with grace,
and a pledge of future glory to us is given.
