Far from dreading an encounter with the Iroquois, Fr. Garnier often told us he would be quite content to fall into the hands of the Iroquois and remain their prisoner if—while they were torturing him—he at least had a chance of instructing them as long as his torments lasted. If they allowed him to live, it would afford him a golden opportunity to work for their conversion, which was now impossible, since the gateway to their country was closed as long as they were our enemies.
— Father Ragueneau (Jesuit Relations)

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.
