Mozart & Ave Verum Corpus

The other Sunday tradition around here is sacred music–as if to atone for the irreverent funneez. This is Mozart’s “Ave Verum Corpus” sung by the Choir of St. John’s College, Cambridge.

Words in Latin and English:

Ave verum corpus, natum de Maria Virgine,
vere passum, immolatum in cruce pro homine,
cuius latus perforatum fluxit aqua et sanguin
esto nobis praegustatum in mortis examine.

Hail, true Body, born of the Virgin Mary, who having truly suffered, was sacrificed on the cross for mankind, whose pierced side flowed with water and blood: May it be for us a foretaste [of the Heavenly banquet] in the trial of death.
