A fittingly angelic version of the song written for Corpus Christi
The fittingly angelic version above was arranged by Latvian composer Ēriks Ešenvalds, one of the most sought after living composers (listen and you’ll see why). The piece was performed by the Trinity College Choir in the Trinity College Chapel in Cambridge. They recorded the song for the Northern Lights album, which is a collection of performances of Ešenvalds’s compositions, including a number of other sacred pieces like Ubi Caritas and Nunc Dimittis. The album is available on iTunes.
