This is 'Qui manducat' (or as some people know it by its longer name, 'Qui manducat carnem meam'). The longer title simply means 'He that eateth my flesh'. About ten minutes of continuous singing from some crumpled sheet music gave this.

Genre is 'a capella' because it's raw vocals, and besides, I've no idea where else to put anything plainchant. But I want. To. Share. This.

If you haven't looked up the words of 'Qui manducat carnem meam' or if you haven't even come across it at all... Here is the translation! http://media.musicasacra.com/pdf/quimanducat.pdf

This is one of those chants which can sung ad libitum, i.e. at any point in time throughout the year. I recently learnt . But whether I am singing this is... really not important now. It's just that this beautiful song was inspired by something so great... how could I, or anyone for that matter, not be compelled to do this?

Wow. What a woman you are! God has blessed you with such a beautiful voice, and we all thank you for using it! How old are you? I guess in your twenties or at least 16.


Troisnyx responds:

I am in my 20s, indeed. Strangely, these days I alternate between the pure, vibrato-less voice and a troubled female soprano voice with heavy vibrato, but it is a God-given talent. Thank you for listening, and I hope to share some more. ^_^

Wow! You have been blessed with a wonderful voice. The only things I'd say are to really watch your airflow, and be a bit more artistic with the piece. Breath support as I'm sure you're aware (Being a cantor) is crucial. This is a relatively difficult piece as it's slower and has some LONG phrases so you need to manage your air effectively and consistently with out taking breaths where there aren't rests, don't let your voice waver. As far as being artistic goes, try to put the raw emotion that this chant carries. Yes, it is sacred, but especially in that first line, try to convey the passion of Christ that he would've put into those words.

Phew. I did not mean for that to be so long. Really though, you have a truly beautiful voice and I say that with the utmost sincerity. Kudos for doing a chant like this, you don't see it on these sites very often at all. Keep training your voice and keep being awesome.

Where do you sign (what)? o.O

At any rate, we'll talk about the collab on your newspost -- and continue from there, hopefully. : )

This is simply stunning. You were right to tag this 'ethereal' and 'angelic' because it certainly is! I could get lost in your voice and it flows so naturally. The reverb you used isn't overbearing and really suits the tone of your voice too which is really important when trying to create the right atmosphere for a piece. Really great work! Great to find more vocalists on Newgrounds! ^ ^

Glad you loved it so -- thank you! <3

If this is anything to go by, then I have to express this wish -- if only anyone could hear me singing chant at Mass on Sundays! Because I recorded this (full) version of Qui manducat as a taster of what I do as a cantor. When cantoring, the reverb is natural and comes from the sound plinking off the church walls. This particular chant can be sung all throughout the year and is done during Communion..... I'm getting lost in the description here. Quite frankly, as a cantor, I have been introduced to beautiful songs that I've had the honour of singing. *happy sigh*
