    I'm looking for very simple versions of "O Bone Jesu" and "Adoramus Te, Christe" in English. And when I say simple, I mean not more than two parts, haha. Thanks!

    Accompanied? ... or a cappella?

    Equal voices? or high & low voices (eg. SA or TB).
  • Tap, tap, tap..........whenever Aria responds I hope its for SA.

    I'll be grateful for anything, but if I could just "commission" it ;-) I'd ask for a capella SA. Thanks for asking :-)

    Here is my just composed Adoramus te, Christe, in English or Latin. I hope it is appropriate. It's for soprano and alto voices, although the two parts overlap, and the ambitus (compass) for the soprano part is actually narrower than that of the alto part. The soprano part essentially reproduces the melody of the Gregorian chant original, except for an ascending run of four eighth notes that fills in the upward leap of a fifth of the chant.

    Edit: Minor corrected (and better formatted) score and matching sound file uploaded.
