Concert in honor of
Fred Beaudoin,
beloved choir director.

Atlantic Reed Consort
Charles Higgs, organ
Betsy Bates, soprano
St. Louis Choir

Fred taught great music to our choir,
which we still sing often.

Cantique de Jean Racine
by Gabriel Faure:

(Music starts at 2:07)

O Lord of Hosts,
How lovely are Thy dwellings.
My soul longs for Thy courts, O Lord,
for Thee my heart and flesh cry out.

O blest are they whose hope
is forever in Thee; Who praise
Thy name, who sing their songs
within Thy holy house…

A sun and shield is the Lord of Hosts…

In Thee I trust; Look down and
hear my prayer.


He encouraged our young artists.
Here Betsy Bates and Charles Higgs,
both natives of St. Louis parish,
perform “Panis Angelicus”
by Cesar Franck.

Panis angelicus
Fit panis hominum
Dat panis coelicus
Figuris terminum
O res mirabilis
Manducat dominum
Pauper, pauper
Servus et humilis

May the Bread of Angels
Become bread for mankind;
The Bread of Heaven puts
All foreshadowings to an end;
Oh, thing miraculous!
The body of the Lord will nourish
the poor, the poor,
the servile, and the humble.
