"PANIS ANGELICUS"

Russell Watson


Russell Watson sings on BBC TVs 'Songs of Praise' Christmas concert performing 'Panis Angelicus'.
This is one of my favourite songs but his best version is on the CD "Russell Watson -The Voice"
and he sings it with the Chamber Choir Of St. Catherine's, Bramley, Guildford, with Nick Ingman,
the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, & William Hayward.
The background choir makes this version so heavenly!! The best version I have ever heard!!
(The words of this hymn are below, along with the English translation.)






Panis angelicus
fit panis hominum;
Dat panis coelicus
figuris terminum:
O res mirabilis!
Manducat Dominum.
Pauper, servus et humilis.

Te trina Deitas
unaque poscimus:
Sic nos tu visita,
sicut te colimus;
Per tuas semitas
duc nos quo tendimus,
Ad lucem quam inhabitas.
Amen.


The angelic bread
becomes the bread of men;
The heavenly bread
ends all prefigurations:
What wonder!
a poor and humble servant
consumes the Lord.

We beg of You,
Triune God
that you visit us,
as we worship You.
By your ways,
lead us who seek
the light in which You dwell.
Amen.
