A singing lesson with Tom 28-April-2021

Updated: May 16

We had another lovely singing lesson with Tom this evening. After an extensive warm up, we've learned the superb Panis Angelicus of Cesar Franck before enjoying the Handel's Allelujah Chorus.


The text was set as a motet by several Renaissance composers including João Lourenço Rebelo. Marc-Antoine Charpentier, one setting H.243 in 1670-75. Later romantic era settings include those by André Caplet, Saint-Saëns, and, best known of all, the setting by César Franck.

Panis angelicus

fit panis hominum;

Dat panis cœlicus

figuris terminum:

O res mirabilis!

Manducat Dominum

pauper, servus et humilis.
