featuring the Gallery Choir of the Church of Saint Mary Magdalene (during the church service)
This gorgeous a cappella motet rose to the top of the Cypress jury list in 2009. Sweet spot vocal registers and intuitive voice leading make this compelling composition approachable for High school, Church and Community choirs. Please take a moment to listen to this poignant setting of the traditional text..

LYRICS

Ave verum corpus
natum de Maria Virgine
Vere passum immolatum 
in cruce pro homine;
Cujus latus perforatum
unda fluxit sanguine
Esto nobis praegustatum
in mortis examine

O dulcis, O pie,
O Jesu, Fili Mariae,
Miserere nobis.

Amen
