Patten, O Salutaris Hostia
William Patten (1804-1863) of Fareham was Organist of St. Cross, Winchester and Conductor of the Winchester Choral Society. Mr. Patten was a pupil of Dr. George William Chard, Organist of Winchester Cathedral from 1802 to 1849. He wrote numerous hymns and anthems. His setting of "O Salutaris Hostia" is one of a surprising number of Latin anthems written by Anglican church musicians for the Roman Catholic Church in the first half of the nineteenth century.
St. St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274)
