O Salutaris Hostia

R 35.00

O Salutaris Hostia is sung in Latin and translates to “O Saving Victim” or “O Saving Sacrifice”. It forms part of one of the Eucharistic hymns written by St Thomas Aquinas for the Feast of Corpus Christi. He wrote it for the Hour of Lauds in the Divine Office. It is actually the last two stanzas of the hymn Verbum supernum prodiens and is used for the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

This setting of this text is vibrant, colourful and truly remarkable work. It is well suited for the advanced choir and challenges both chorister and conductor with varying time signatures and rhythmical passages. Perfect for both the concert as well as the competition setting
