Messe brève no. 7 Aux chapelles - IV : O Salutaris
Mass in C Major - Messe breve en Do
This O Salutaris Hostia is the fourth of five movements in 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 O Salutaris Hostia opens with solo female voices singing a quiet and meditative melody which is then continued by the four-part choir.
It is worth noting that this O Salutaris Hostia replaces the Benedictus of the original 1877 version for two equal voices with organ.
