Hail, True Body

Ave verum corpus has so many wonderful settings. Here's one that my former Anglo-Catholic parish choir used to sing a lot by William Byrd.

My second-favorite piece of music ever.

Byrd is second only to Bach, I think...

So what's the first?

Byrd's Marian Masses are simply beautiful.

MY favorite Ave Verum, for sure! (and MY former Anglo-Catholic choir used to sing it, too . . . )

Love those Miserere mei's . . .
