Program Notes

When Donald White submitted his newest composition to his publisher in 1974, its title was Aeterna Christi munera. However, the publishers changed the title to Ambrosian Hymn Variants, and so it remains today.

Aeterna Christi munera (The Eternal Gifts of Christ the King) is an Ambrosian hymn found in the Historical Anthology of Music; its simple lines create an ideal subject for this theme and variations.

- Program Note from publisher

Ambrosian chant (also known as Milanese chant) is the liturgical plainchant repertory of the Ambrosian rite of the Roman Catholic Church, related to but distinct from Gregorian chant. It is primarily associated with the Archdiocese of Milan, and named after St. Ambrose much as Gregorian chant is named after Gregory the Great. It is the only surviving plainchant tradition besides the Gregorian to maintain the official sanction of the Roman Catholic Church.
