Information about the piece

Panis Angelicus translates to 'Bread of Angels' and is a sacred work from 1872 by Belgian composer Cesar Franck. He wrote the piece for the Feast of Corpus Christi, a traditional Catholic festival celebrating the Eucharist. The lyrics are from a verse of Sacris solemniis, a hymn written by Thomas Aquinas, a famous philosopher and theologian of the Catholic Church in the 13th Century.

The song showcases Franck's characteristic Romantic style rich in harmony and melodic development. The composition blends sacred choral music with an individualistic and emotional touch. This is evident in its simple, soulful hymn-like quality.The music exhibits a tonal melody that has a distinct beginning, middle and conclusion, guided by a regular rhythmic pattern. It is written in a 4/4 meter which makes it easy to follow for beginner/intermediate level pianists.
