For the Feast of Corpus Christi: The Pange Lingua with Mike Aquilina

Tell, tongue, the mystery

of the glorious Body

and of the precious Blood,

which, for the price of the world,

the fruit of a noble Womb,

the King of the Nations poured forth.

The Pange Lingua is one of the great hymns for Feast of Corpus Christi, one of many classic hymns St. Thomas Aquinas wrote. Yes, one of the world's great philosophers and theologians is also a poet.

The Pange Lingua celebrates the miraculous reality of the Eucharist: the great mystery that the bread and wine become for us the actual Body and Blood of Christ Jesus.

For the Feast of Corpus Christi come celebrate this hymn and this miracle with an amazing panel of guests featuring Mike Aquilina one of the great apologists of our time, who has written a book on the Pange Lingua and other classic hymns of St. Thomas Aquinas: Praying in the Presence of Our Lord with St. Thomas Aquinas. (Wonderful for Eucharistic Adoration and Communion preparation it's on Amazon.)

Joining us will be Rebecca Raber and Joseph Stuart both of the University of Mary. Rebecca uses the Pange Lingua to teach sacred music. Joseph wrote a great recent study of Christopher Dawson who had splendid ideas on cult and culture.

Rebecca Raber is the conductor of Cappella, the new University of Mary Chapel Choir, which scholarships students from across the country to come and sing sacred music at the University of Mary. She is a Catholic Studies Fellow and teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in music. Dr. Raber has researched spirituals extensively in her academic studies and is dedicated to building community through singing spirituals.

Rebecca writes: "My sacred music choir, Cappella, has a Eucharistic Revival Project going on this and next year. We’ve commissioned two composers for Eucharistic pieces. I’m just back from class and getting ready for my next one, but I wanted to mention that." Read about it here:

BONUS: We too have commissioned some new hymns for Eucharistic revival as part of our Composer's Institute with Sir James MacMillan. Come and hear a new setting of the Pange Lingua and meet one of the 8 rising young composers your support of the Benedict XVI Institute has helped.
