Ed Eicker recently set the text O Sacrum Convivium by Thomas Aquinas (1227–1274) to a translation by Alan J. Hommerding in "O Great Sacred Feast of Life." The piece begins with a unison statement of the prayer in Latin. Incorporating the same opening melody, two-part treatment of the translation is then presented with fluid homophonic vocal writing. A bass part in Latin is added to the texture, complementing the piece with poise and beauty.
