Sunday Music & Messiaen & O Sacrum Convivium!

Olivier Messiaen, “O Sacrum Convivium!” (1937), John Rutter directing The Cambridge Singers (1995).

O sacrum convivium!
in quo Christus sumitur:
recolitur memoria passionis eius:
mens impletur gratia:
et futurae gloriae nobis pignus datur.
Alleluia.

O sacred banquet!
in which Christ is received,
the memory of his Passion is renewed,
the mind is filled with grace,
and a pledge of future glory to us is given.
Alleluia.
