Description

Two-Part or SAB and organ. The Tantum ergo (Op.65, No.2) of Thomas Aquinas in English translation. Lush and romantic, and very "Frenchy." A short communion anthem by one of the masters.

Word made Flesh, this bread bestowing
by his Word his flesh to be,
Though our senses fail to see.
Wine, his sacred Blood he makes,
faith alone, the true heart wakes.
Through this Sacrament may we
now behold the mystery.

Glory let us give, and blessing
To the Father and the Son,
While eternal ages run;
honor, thanks, and praise address
Ever too his love confess;
Holy Spirit, Father, Son,
ever three and ever one,
while eternal ages run.
Amen.
