A motet for Good Friday by Victoria.  Live recording of Voces, conducted by Martyn Warren, Buckfast Abbey 19 March 2011. 

"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)."
