The singing of O sacrum convivium by the Palmer Choir of Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church in Houston, Texas was a highpoint of the 2007 ACDA national convention. Featuring both homophonic and polyphonic sections, the music is on one hand romantic, but on the other, a bit edgy, all for dramatic purposes. A range of contrasts with the dynamics helps underscore the vivid text. Besides the original Latin text, the composer includes a new paraphrase in the score that noted hymn writer Richard Leach wrote. Mr. Leach composed his text especially to fit the music that was originally set in Latin.
