Description

Music of Nicholas White

8 pages, 8.5" x 11"

Nicholas White’s new musical setting of the 14th Century prayer Anima Christi, sanctifica me ("Soul of Christ, sanctify me") incorporates a  melody which is loosely based on the original plainsong tune.

This is supported by full, lush harmonies, which have become a trademark of White’s writing for unaccompanied choral ensembles. 

With expressive writing for a solo soprano, and a descant for the choral sopranos, this richly melodic piece gets to the heart of the poignant text, in a motet which will enhance any liturgy, and will work just as well in a concert setting.

Translation

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, inebriate me.
Water from Christ’s side, wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O good Jesus, hear me.
Within Thy wounds hide me.
Suffer me not to be separated from Thee.
From the malicious enemy defend me. I
n the hour of my death call me.
And bid me come unto Thee.
That I may praise Thee with
Thy saints and with Thy angels forever and ever.
Amen.
