Panis angelicus ('Bread of Angels') is the second-to-last verse of a hymn by Saint Thomas Aquinas for the Feast of Corpus Christi. César Franck most famously set these lines in 1872. It's been a favourite over the years for the likes of the Three Tenors, Andrea Bocelli and Jessye Norman. It was sung by Richard Tucker at the funeral of Bobby Kennedy and by Plácido Domingo at the funeral of his brother Edward Kennedy.
