    In response to a request from a forum member here, I have prepared a (transposed) edition for SMzABar voices of Claudio Merulo's Qui manducat meam carnem. It has already been published at CPDL, which also has the TTBB source from which i worked. I'm attaching the PDF score and an MP3 sound file for your convenience. There are also four individual part-emphasized sound files that I prepared for this edition, useful for private learning/rehearsal.

    Also nice at tone lower for SATB!

    Yep, Richard ... I actually have it transposed for SATB but just not posted yet. The present edition was for a choir with only 3 men.

    Here's the SATB version, down a whole tone from my SMzABar version, or up a perfect fourth from the TTBB original.
  • Thanks! And just in time to prepare for Corpus Christi. Very nice.

    You're welcome ... it's an exquisite piece and not too difficult.

    The text is actually the communion proper for the 15th Sunday in OT which happens to fall on July 14th this year.

    I like to give the choir lots of time to get comfortable with a piece before we sing it. :)
