    Panis Angelicus

    Panis angelicus is the penultimate strophe of the hymn Sacris solemniis written by Saint Thomas Aquinas for the Feast of Corpus Christi as part of a complete liturgy of the Feast including prayers for the Mass and the Liturgy of the Hours.

    The strophe of Sacris solemniis that begins with the words "Panis angelicus" (bread of angels) has often been set to music separately from the rest of the hymn. Most famously, in 1872 César Franck set this strophe for tenor, organ, harp, cello, and double bass; later arranging it for tenor, chorus, and orchestra, he incorporated it into his Messe solennelle Opus 12.

    Here is my performance of this famous piece by César Franck.

    Enjoy!

    Ps. The sounds are from GPO4 except the organ.

    very very nice! sounds like I'm in a cathedral, and the organ is further away (like it would be), and I'm right in front of the flute player!

    Franc is not high on the list in the minds of some modern day composers.
    My favorite Symphony is his D minor-his only symphony.
    This song used to be a favorite of Small school bands in Texas during the '60's. Playing full sounding, legato, slow pieces is a challenge for young musicians.
    An excellent job on this.

    Gday Stefan,

    This is nice music, though the flute’s timbre is not quite right dynamically, in respect to the air blown over the flute. Also too much dynamics does not enhance musical expression but becomes tiring. I get the impression that the volume was simply turned up and down instead of changing dynamics by loudness change, associated with timbre change.

    On balance, it is quite pleasant to listen to.
