We Glory in Your Cross, O Lord
This brief, easy motet goes from elegant polyphony to Gregorian chant; a little jewel that would make an excellent Holy Week introit.
“We Glory in Your Cross, O Lord” is the first of three Good Friday Anthems in the book of common prayer. This setting includes the use of a common chant in the central section which should be sung simply with even tone to provide a contrast to the part singing.
