“From six in the evening, his martyrdom had continued through the ghastly night until nine o'clock in the morning. After fifteen hours of torture rarely if ever surpassed in the bloody annals of the Iroquois, the soul of Gabriel Lalemant was freed from its charred and mutilated prison and summoned to join his comrade Jean de Brébeuf in the radiant splendor of God. March 17th, 1649, was the date; for Brébeuf it had been the sixteenth.”
— Fr. John A. O'Brien, speaking of St. Gabriel Lalemant

Tantum Ergo by a French Composer
published 24 March 2016 by Andrew Leung

OLY THURSDAY is finally here. This is the day when the famous Eucharistic text, Tantum Ergo Sacramentum (last two verses of the Pange Lingua), is sung traditionally. Last year, I directed my choir in a setting by French composer, Déodat de Sévérac. It wasn’t an easy piece to learn, but we did it successfully after weeks of practice. I just want to share this beautiful piece with everyone today. A PDF file of the score is available on CPDL. I hope the music helps you enter into deeper prayer.
