Description

The original published score states "with organ accompaniment ad libitum." Messiaen later in life designated the work for mixed choir a cappella, but the score was not revised. Thus the piece is often performed without accompaniment. The text is by St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274), used as an antiphon for the feast of Corpus Christi.
