photograaph of the day: Photographers Frances and Mary Allen



Photographers Frances and Mary Allen
Sisters Frances and Mary Allen of Deerfield, Massachusetts, began their careers as schoolteachers, but when deafness forced a change of profession, they turned to photography. Their work shows everyday activities in a rural community, like this photo of Margaret Tombs Jones churning butter. Self-taught in their craft, the Allen sisters achieved remarkable success. During their photography career from 1885 to 1920, their work appeared in numerous books and magazines as covers, illustrations and frontispieces.

César Franck: Panis Angelicus with Soprano Danee Robinson


This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Panis angelicus is the penultimate strophe of the hymn Sacris solemniis written by Saint Thomas Aquinas for the Feast of Corpus Christi as part of a complete liturgy of the Feast including prayers for the Mass and the Liturgy of the Hours.

The strophe of Sacris solemniis that begins with the words “Panis angelicus” (bread of angels) has often been set to music separately from the rest of the hymn. Most famously, in 1872 César Franck set this strophe for voice (tenor), harp, cello, and organ, and incorporated it into his Messe à trois voix Opus 12. (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panis_Angelicus)

I hope you too will enjoy Danee Robinson’s interpretation  of the sublime  hymn  ” Panis Angelicus.”
