Carolina Catholic Chorale: “Adoramus te” Lenten Special
Monday, April 7, 2014, 8pm
As an extra on the Arts at the Abbey series the newly-formed Carolina Catholic Chorale will present a Lenten devotional Adoramus te, Christe Monday April 7, 2014 at 8:00 PM in the Belmont Abbey Basilica on the campus of Belmont Abbey College, Belmont NC. The program features fourteen polyphonic settings of the text sung as responses to the Stations of the Cross.. The text of Adoramus te, Christe is taken from an antiphon from Good Friday which is translated as We adore thee, O Christ, and we bless thee: because by thy holy cross thou hast redeemed the world.
Settings include those by Renaissance masters such as Handl, Lassus, Monteverdi, Viadana, and many more. These works are well suited to the acoustics of the Basilica.
