O Sacrum Convivium

CMP 519 06 126
In this setting of the communion antiphon O Sacrum Convivium Eoghan Desmond draws on traditional techniques such as imitation, sequence and pedal points – a link with choral music of the past. While these techniques bring a comforting sense of familiarity this is also music of today, the piece full of deft touches of contemporary harmony. A more reflective middle section, referencing Christ’s Passion, is sensitively portrayed with undulating lines before the music strengthens as the message of the prayer features the words ‘futurae gloriae’. The choir becomes awash with sound and colour; resplendent melodies ascending to a height, then cascading down. Sublime!
