Description
A quiet, four-stanza organ setting of the well-known plainsong, suitable for use as a service prelude or as a communion meditation. The piece becomes harmonically richer as it progresses from stanza to stanza, yet remains easy to play throughout.

Review
"These fine settings [by Al Fedak: Meditation on Adoro te Devote, Divinum Mysterium, and Variations on Pange Lingua], all very improvisatory, are good music and easy to play. Adoro te begins with a canon between soprano and bass, over and under a two-chord ostinato; organum, a key change, etc. make it a practical and effective setting of this seminal chant. Though the writing is dreamy and meditative, a large instrument is not required."--AAM Journal, September 2001
