Messe brève no. 7 Aux chapelles - V : Agnus Dei

Mass in C Major - Messe breve en Do



This Agnus Dei is the fifth and last movement of Charles-François Gounod's Messe brève no. 7 Aux chapelles.

This Messe brève no. 7 was originally published in 1877 in a version for two equal voices with organ.

In 1890, Gounod rearranged it for soli, four-part mixed choir and organ and added the words Aux chapelles to the title.

This beautiful Agnus Dei opens with solo male voices singing a simple yet very lyrical melody.

Then the four-part choir enters, repeating and expanding this melody upwards to its summit, after which a descending cascade leads back downwards to the main melody.

The Agnus Dei then ends with the pleas for peace uttered in pianissimo chords.

Duration : 02:24
