Description: For five part male ensemble + piano The melody is Christe Redemptor Omnium, I moved it to the parallel minor. The harmony is after Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings. You will need a thirteen voice male ensemble, (or just one on a part then you only need five) have the men stand around the piano as if it is a table, basically it’s the story of the last supper. You could add table cloth on the piano if you wish, "make it look like" "The Last Supper" by Leonardo da Vinci.

Divide it among you,

This for many, for forgiveness of sins,
Drink from it, all.
