William Byrd: Ave Verum
VOCES8

TEXT
Ave verum corpus, natum de Maria Virgine,
vere passum, immolatum in cruce pro homine,
cuius latus perforatum fluxit sanguine:
esto nobis praegustatum in mortis examine.

O Iesu dulcis, O Iesu pie, O Iesu, fili Mariae.
Miserere mei. Amen.

TRANSLATION
Hail, true Body, born of the Virgin Mary,
who has truly suffered,
was sacrificed on the cross for mortals,
whose pierced side flowed with blood:
Be for us a foretaste [of Heaven]
in the final judgement.

Oh sweet, oh pious, oh Jesus, son of Mary,
Have mercy on me. Amen.
