Description:
Cantique de Jean Racine (Op. 11) is a work for mixed chorus and piano or organ by Gabriel Fauré. Written by the nineteen year old composer in 1864-5, the piece won Fauré the first prize when he graduated from the École Niedermeyer and was first performed the following year on August 4, 1866, with accompaniment of strings and organ. It was first published around 1875 or 1876 (Schoen, Paris, as part of the series Echo des Maîtrises) and appeared in a version for orchestra (possibly by the composer) in 1906. The accompaniment has also been arranged for strings and harp by John Rutter.

The text, "Verbe égal au Très-Haut", is a paraphrase by Jean Racine (Hymnes traduites du Bréviaire romain, 1688) of the pseudo-ambrosian hymn for Tuesday matins, Consors paterni luminis.



<poem style="margin-left:2em; font-style:italic">Verbe égal au Très-Haut, notre unique espérance,Jour éternel de la terre et des cieux,De la paisible nuit nous rompons le silence:Divin sauveur, jette sur nous les yeux.

Répands sur nous le feu de ta grâce puissante;Que tout l'enfer fuie au son de ta voix;Dissipe ce sommeil d'une âme languissanteQui la conduit à l'oubli de tes lois!

Ô Christ ! sois favorable à ce peuple fidèle,Pour te bénir maintenant assemblé;Reçois les chants qu'il offre à ta gloire immortelle,Et de tes dons qu'il retourne comblé.</poem>

Here is the original Latin text:Breviarum romanum ex decreto sacrosancti Concilii tridentini...
