General Information

Title: O quam sanctus panis iste
Composer: Heinrich Finck
Number of voices: 4vv   Voicing: SATB
Genre: SacredOffice hymn

Language: Latin
Instruments: A cappella

First published: 1542 in Sacrorum hymnorum liber primus (Georg Rhau), no. 72
Description: The second verse of the late medieval hymn Jesus Christus nostra salus attributed to Jan Hus but probably by the Archbishop of Prague, Jan of Jenštejn. The SATB parts are almost identical to the corresponding voices in a five part setting Jesus Christus nostra salus (Heinrich Finck) in D-Dl Ms Mus. 1/D/505 (Annaberger Chorbuch I). (The fifth part in this setting is a free counterpoint part not participating in the imitation between the main voices.)
