Palestrina: Ego sum panis vivus


As we continue our perusal of the sacred repertoire of  Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, the greatest Italian composer of the 16th century, we sample his motet Ego sum panis visus, a musical composition for the the Feast of Corpus Christi. The Latin title, means, I am the living Bread.

This performance is  by the King’s Singers.

FromRome.Info features at 5 P.M. daily, Rome time, a selection of sacred music for the edification of our readers, so that they can better grasp how contrary to the very nature of Catholic liturgy were the so called “reforms” of Vatican II.
