    Hi All,

    I'm trying to find out more information about an Adoro te devote in my choir's library. I don't have the score in front of me, but the opening strain for soloist/unison is as follows (possibly in a different key):


    It then branches into SSA homophony, and the remaining verses are the same. The whole piece is accompanied by organ.

    Because it is entered into our catalogue without a composer, I suspect no information is given on the score. I'm wondering who the composer is, and if the piece is still under copyright.

    Does anyone recognise this piece, or can they shed any light on its origin?

    The piece is by Dom Stephen Moreno OSB and is out of the 'Hymni Eucharistici' collection.

    @Palestrina Fantastic, thanks for the info! Looks like he is *just* out of public domain where I am.

    The Australian national digital repository has a ton of music by Moreno.
