Anglican Chant: H. Walford Davies
Handel: Hallelujah! Amen
from Judas Maccabaeus
Crux fidelis, inter omnes arbor una nobilis:
nulla silva talem profert, fronde, flore, germine.
Dulce lignum, dulces clavos,dulce pondus sustinet.
Faithful cross, above all other, One and only noble tree:
None in foliage, none in blossom, None in fruit thy peer may be.
Sweetest wood and sweetest iron, Sweetest weight is hung on thee!
– Venantius Fortunatus (530-609)
Handel: ‘La Rejouaissance’
from Music for the Royal Fireworks
