Sanctus

Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus
Dominus Deus Sabaoth.
Pleni sunt caeli et terra gloria tua.
Hosanna in excelsis.
Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini.
Hosanna in excelsis.

What do you know about Sanctus?

Yes, the Latin word means ‘holy.’ It is sung. I remember my mother used to sing the solo part of it in church, but I know little else. Isn’t it nice to have Wikipedia on stand by?

The Sanctus is a hymn from Christian liturgy. In Western Christianity, the Sanctus is sung (or said) as the final words of the Preface of the Eucharistic Prayer, the prayer of consecration of the bread and wine. The preface, which alters according to the season, usually concludes with words describing the praise of the worshipers joining with the angels, who are pictured as praising God with the words of the Sanctus.

Listen to these angels. They are called Libera, an all-boy vocal group from South London.
