A singing lesson with Tom 28-April-2021
Updated: May 16, 2021
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.
fit panis hominum;
Dat panis cœlicus
O res mirabilis!
pauper, servus et humilis.
