Default Lenten Music

Since we're heading to the culmination of Lent, it is a good time to listen to some of the Church's music which captures this liturgical season.

Allegri's Miserere (Based on Ps. 50 [51] the great psalm of repentance, in a hauntingly beautiful setting, sung by King's College Choir, Cambridge:

Samuel Barber's Agnus Dei (Lamb of God), sung by the King's College Choir as above:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KkObnNQCMtM

Finally, modesty does not prevent me in mentioning our own seminary choir (of which I am a member) singing 'Jerusalem', (based on the lamentations of Jeremiah), back in December in our college chapel:

Excellent videos Shane. Jerusalem sounded fantastic, well done. My all time favorite is Agnus Dei, and this version is very good.

Default My favorite of all time

The "Pange Lingua" is my favorite of all time. It literally makes me cry and sends shivers down my spine. Whenever I hear it, I want to just kneel in adoration in some trance state.

The Pange Lingua, as Gabriel mentioned:
One of the profound Eucharistic Hymns by St. Thomas Aquinas. It is sung each Holy Thursday night as the Blessed Sacrament is transferred from the altar/tabernacle to the altar of repose.
