    Does anyone know of a Mass on the tune of Ave Verum for Corpus Christi? For some reason I can only recall motets by Byrd and Josquin etc.

    If not, another good Mass setting for Corpus Christi you would recommend for a small choir?

    Thank you!

    There's a Josquin Missa Pange Lingua:

    Richard Proulx wrote a setting based on Adoro te Devote, called Corpus Christi Mass

    The Petite Messe «Ave Verum Corpus» by Amédeé Gastoué (1873–1943) is a three-voice (SABar) setting of all movements except the Credo. Other than the Gloria, its range requirements are pretty modest. Might be worth a look.

    For mixed voices Palestrina's Missa Lauda Sion) lies a little bit easier than Josquin, who otherwise is unexcelled.
