Luciano Pavarotti • Panis Angelicus

I decided to class up the joint a bit this week, and bring in one to be most recognizable voice of the past century, the last Luciano Pavarotti. In this first clip, he sings "Panis Angelicus", a hymn Sacris solemniis written by Saint Thomas Aquinas for the Feast of Corpus Christi.

In the second and final clip of the morning, I figure you cannot go wrong with Pavarotti singing "Ave Maria". Well, you can't go wrong with Pavarotti period, but he certainly has such beautiful depth, a wonderful take on the song.

Happy Sunday!


  1. I love "Panis Angelicus" when I was still a sunday school boy, we used to sing 'penis and jelly boots' oh how we laughed.
