A Canticle Intonation
For Unison choir and organ, a setting of the traditional Solemn Anthem texts for Good Friday in a solemn and chantlike vein. Perfect for Good Friday liturgies that use the organ.
We glory in your Cross, O Lord, and praise and glorify your Holy Resurrection; for by virtue of your cross joy has come to the whole world.
May God be merciful to us and bless us, show us the Light of his countenance and come to us.
Let the peoples praise you, O God; Let all the peoples praise you. Let your ways be known upon earth, your saving health upon all nations.
We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you, because by your holy Cross you have redeemed the world.
If we have died with him, we shall also live with him; if we endure we shall also reign with him.
We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you, because by your holy Cross you have redeemed the world. Amen.
