The 'Te Deum' is one of the most ancient, and inspiring, of christian liturgical texts. At one time it was believed to have been jointly written by St. Ambrose and St. Augustine, but recent research suggests it is even older, originating early in the fourth century as a Preface, Sanctus, and concluding prayer for the Mass of Easter Vigil; there are even echoes of the psalms heard at several points in the text.
