Ave Verum
Camille Saint-Saëns (1835-1921)

Saint-Saëns was a child prodigy, and he entered the Paris Conservatoire in 1848. By 1853 he was organist at St. Merry. There, his Mass, op. 4 was first performed in 1857. Its dedicatee, Abbé Gabriel, was so impressed that he invited Saint-Saëns to accompany him on a visit to Italy. Also in 1857, he was able to take up the post of organist at the Madeleine and remained there for the next 20 years. He is known especially for instrumental music, including The Carnival of the Animals, Danse Macabre, Samson et Dalila, and Symphony No. 3 (Organ Symphony). Although he is not generally associated with sacred music, Saint-Saëns' sacred compositions are numerous, including a Mass, a Requiem Mass, settings of several psalms and liturgical texts, and this setting of the Ave Verum Corpus text (Opus 145), written in 1860.

Ave, verum corpus natum
de Maria Virgine:
vere passum, immolatum
in cruce pro homine:
cuius latus perforatum
fluxit aqua et sanguine.
esto nobis praegustatum,
in mortis examine.
O Jesu dulcis!
O Jesu pie!
Tu nobis miserere.     Hail the true body, born
of the Virgin Mary:
You who truly suffered and were sacrificed
on the cross for the sake of man.
From whose pierced flank
flowed water and blood:
Be a foretaste for us
in the trial of death.
O sweet Jesus!
O dear Jesus,
Have mercy on us.
