Three nice “Ego sum panis vivus” settings

Michael Haller

Josef Surzynski

Juan Esquivel

To my surprise, this text is not part of the Mass Proper. It is the Benedictus antiphon for Lauds of Body & Blood.

The Haller, especially outside Easter season (where the “Alleluia” can suitably be omitted), would make a good “quick” choral communion motet, perhaps preceding a congregational song in parishes where congregations expect to sing at communion.
