"Surely,he has borne our griefs and has carried our sorrows (dolores nostros):  He was wounded (cujus livore) for our transgressions.  Sweet wood (dulce lignum), sweet nails, sweet iron, bearing a sweeter burden; they only (quae sola) were deemed worthy to uphold the heavenly King and Lord (sustinere Regem)."

"The wicked one betrayed Jesus to be condemned of the chief priests and elders of the people.  And Peter followed afar off, that he might see the end.  And they led him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and Pharisees were assembled.  And Peter followed afar off, that he might see the end."

One of Victoria's responsories for Good Friday.  Not the smoothest of performances, but with the energy and commitment the music and text demand.  Live recording of Voces, conducted by Martyn Warren, Buckfast Abbey 19 March 2011.  Trio:  Catherine Bass, Colin Avery, Simon Standing.

"Have you come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves for to take me?  I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and you took me not:  and yet, behold, you scourge me, and lead me to be crucified.  And when they had laid their hands on Jesus, and taken hold upon him, he said unto them:  I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and you took me not."
