This is probably one of my favorite settings of this text, and it may be in my top 20 choral pieces of all time too. I sang this piece my first semester in choir EVER my junior year of high school. When I first heard the recording I was immediately intimidated. “How on earth am I going to sing something this beautiful!? It can’t be easy!”
Years later I couldn’t remember the composer, and naturally when you try and search “Ave Verum Corprus” you get quite a few results. So today I decided to search youtube, and it was the very first video to show! Obviously, this was meant to be blogged about, right?
