John,are you familiar with the Brompton Oratory in Knightsbridge?I see its supposed to be very popular with rich Catholics.Its down the street from Harrods.My interest in it was due to the fact that my mother's brother and wife were married there in the 1940's.I had heard it was a beautiful church so after afternoon tea in Harrods one day a few years sister,Aunt and I set off to find it. We weren't disappointed.Last December my sister,her husband and one of my best friends heard a Latin Mass there.It was beautiful..Here are two websites you might be interested in.
Thanks for the link to Sacred Heart in Wimbledon.Jesuits eh ?
Theres not a whole lot of information out there on Claudio Casciolini.Looks like he also composed Tantum Ergo, words by Thomas Aquinas (as noted by JDP further down ) along with about 16 other composers .What else can you tell me about him.
Tantum ergo sacramentum
Veneremur cernui,
Et antiquum documentum
Novo cedat ritui;
Praestet fides supplementum
Sensuum defectui.

Genitori Genitoque
Laus et jubilatio,
Salus, honor, virtus quoque
Sit et benedictio;
Procedenti ab utroque
Compar sit laudatio.

English translation
So let us devoutly revere this great sacrament, and the old covenant may give way to the new rite. May faith grant assistance to the deficiency of our senses.

Jubilant praise, glory, laud, honor, and benediction be to the Father and the Son. Equal praise be to Him that proceeds from the two.

Frankly it sounds better in Latin.

PS.It stays in your head though and after all these years I was reminded of it watching the Mass at Yankee Stadium.
