O Crux, Ave, Spes Unica  |  Brumel  |   TTBB a cappella  2'

This is a classic setting of verse 6 of the Vexilla Regis, a hymn to the Holy Cross, which is believed to have been first sung as a processional chant on November 19, 569.   The "veni" added at the end of this strophe is most likely due to the many revisions the hymn underwent over the centuries before settling in its current form for Passiontide.  


The motet leaves us saying "veni" not emphatically, but with a sigh and virtuous resignation of the will.  


The following score contains both the Passiontide text and the verse substitution for the Feast of the Triumph of the Cross.


This carefully researched, beautifully engraved, and optimally arranged score will save you hours of preparation and rehearsal time, and be a joy for your singers to use.

I offer make it availble to you, so that you can spend less time at the computer and more time making music.


Thank you for supporting my work!

    Hail, O Cross, our only hope! At this Passiontide, [In this thy triumphant glory,] grant increase of justice and grant pardon, come.
