“As the subject of the language of worship was discussed in the Council hall over the course of several days, I followed the process with great attention, as well as later the various wordings of the Liturgy Constitution until the final vote. I still remember very well how after several radical proposals a Sicilian bishop rose and implored the fathers to allow caution and reason to reign on this point, because otherwise there would be the danger that the entire Mass might be held in the language of the people-whereupon the entire hall burst into uproarious laughter.”
— Alfons Cardinal Stickler, peritus of Vatican II

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.
