Some Bruckner for your Good Friday

Anton Bruckner wrote multiple settings of “Christus Factus Est Pro Nobis.”  This particular one is near and dear to my heart because it was the first Bruckner motet I learned to sing.  In fact, it was the first Bruckner work of any kind to which I was introduced.

Here’s a rendition by the Bristol Cathedral Choir.

Christus factus est pro nobis obediens usque ad mortem, mortem autem crucis.  Propter quod et Deus exaltavit illum et dedit illi nomen, quod est super omne nomen.
