Sacris Solemniis Juncta Sint Gaudia

Sacris Solemniis Juncta Sint Gaudia is the beginning of a festival hymn composed by Thomas Aquinas, of which the first stanza runs thus:

"Sacris solemniis juncta sint gaudia, Et ex praecordiis soneut praeconia; Recedant vetera, nova sint omnia, Corda, voces, et opera."

There is an English translation by Chambers in the Lyra Eucharistica, p. 70:

"Let this our solemn feast With holy joys be crowned," etc.;

and another by Caswall in Hymns and Poems, Original and Translated, p. 54:

"Let old things pass away, Let all be fresh and bright," etc.

There is also a German translation of this hymn in Bassler's Auswahl altchristlicher Lieder (Berlin, 1858), p. 116, and a second one in Rambach, Anthologie christlicher Gesange, 1, 311. (B.P.)
