Andrea Gabrieli’s Caro Mea Sung by the Schola Sainte Cécile

I had been planning to post this video along with still pictures of the Mass during which it was taken, and the beautiful church of St Dominic in Valletta, Malta, where it was celebrated. Unfortunately, the SD card with those pictures on it had a breakdown, and its ultimate fate remains as yet undetermined. (Prayers, please!) In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this recording of Andrea Gabrieli’s Caro mea, sung by our good friends of the Schola Sainte Cécile, conducted by Henri Adam de Villiers. This was the Communion motet at the Mass of St Louis IX, king of France, on August 25th, one of several liturgies celebrated during the Schola’s recent pilgrimage to Malta. (There will be more pictures coming up soon, from a replacement card.)

Caro Caro mea vere est cibus, et sanguis meus vere est potus: qui mandúcat meam carnem et bibit meum sánguinem, in me manet et ego in eo. - My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink; he that eateth My flesh and drinketh My Blood, abideth in Me, and I in him.
