Pange Lingua (with alternate SATB tune!)

Excite your choir and your congregation this Holy Thursday at the Solemn Translation (Transferral) of the Holy Eucharist, or any other day as a Communion hymn.  This is the familiar Mode III (phrygian) chant tune with an original accompaniment, but with an alternate original tune in SATB for your choir!
