Chant of Benevento - Crucem Tuam

The way of the one who would walk out in the wilderness with Christ for forty days is by its nature, let us never forget, the way of the cross. So I thought it might be fitting to share a chant here that helps focus our gaze, and our heart, on the holy cross. This is a medieval chant for the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, which has both a sequence and Psalm 148. Noteworthy is the beautiful way in which it alternates between Greek and Latin chant.
