These settings of two medieval prayers are strongly contrasted – the first canonic and concentrated, the second like a magic spell. The words of Panis angelicus are by Thomas Aquinas (1225–74); Anima Christi was known as the Prayer of St Patrick, and may have been written in seventh century Ireland.

  1. Panis angelicus
  2. Anima Christi
