I have to admit it. I love to sing. So I was happy this morning when the choirmaster announced that for a communion meditation we would sing Adam of St. Victor's sequence for the Ascension, Postquam hostem et inferna.
Postquam hostem et inferna
spoliavit ad superna
Christus redit gaudia
sicut olim descendenti
"After despoiling enemy and hell,
Christ returns to joyful heights,
ascending as before he descended,
attended by the angels."
That's very loose. As always, translation improvements are welcome in the comments!
