Tantum Ergo by Mozart: sung today by my church choir

Jun 05, 2016, 08:47 PM

As you will no doubt be able to tell, this anthem can be hellishly hard to sing. I really admire my choir and music director for tackling it. Here are the words in case anyone's interested: Tantum ergo sacramentum veneremur cernui, et antiquum documentum novo cedat ritui; praestet fides supplementum sensuum defectui. Genitoro genitoque laus et jubilatio, salus, honor, virtus quoque sit et benedictio; procedenti ab utroque compar sit laudatio. Amen. So let us devoutly revere this great sacrament, that the old covenant may give way to the new rite and may faith grant assistance to the deficiency of our senses. Jubilant praise, glory, laud, honour and benediction be to the Father and the Son, and equal praise be to Him that proceeds from the two. Amen. #anthems #choir #church #Mozart #music
