Composition by Camille SAINT-SAňNS (1835-1921), ancient text: prayer for eucharist.

A hymn (similar to an antiphon) in honour of the Blessed Sacrament, dated after the year 1000. This sacred composition dates from approximately 1860; some suggest the probable date of 1865. The versified text comprises 4 distichs (8 + 7 syllables) followed by a non-metric triple acclamation (O Jesu dulcis ! O Jesu pie! O Jesu fili Mariae, which Saint-SaŽns does not use.
A highly inspired piece that admirably serves this text, which brings the prayer of the worshippers to the climax of the celebration.
