Music for Good Friday 3 - Crux Fidelis

Hymn in praise of the Triumph of the Cross. I always feel that the chant melody suggests well the bleakness of the hillside of Calvary after the Crucifixion, but also conveys a sense of nobility and hope.
This video shows a Pilgrimage chapel in Germany - the Crucifix conveys well Our Lord's suffering; the ex voto offerings around it, the victory of His Passion.
