Text Information:
Reference: Hymn for Good Friday Veneration of the Cross, Venantius Fortunatus (c. 530– c. 600)
Source: Graduale Romanum

Duration: 3:00
Notes: SATB with Soprano solo. Most properly for Good Friday Veneration of the Cross: See Gregorian Missal pp. 317-321, and Liber Usualis (Ed. no. 801) pp. 742-745. Ten verses in G.M. and L.U. This piece is the refrain. Recommended here as a possibility for Palm Sunday as well due to the reading of the Passion. Because this is accompanied, if one does not use the organ on Good Friday then this would only be suitable for Palm Sunday.
