A work I wrote for choir back in 2009. It was the winning piece in a University-wide composition competition. It is performed here by the Maynooth Chamber Choir conducted by Ruaidhrí Ó Dálaigh.
Tenebrae factae sunt, dum crucifixissent Jesum Judaei: et circa horam nonam exclamat Jesus voce magna: Deus meus, ut quid me dereliquisti? Et inclinato capite, emisit spiritum. V. Exclamans Jesus voce magna, ait: Pater, in manus tuas commendo spiritum meum. Et inclinato capite, emisit spiritum.
There was darkness over the earth when the Jews crucified Jesus: and about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice: My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? And having bowed his head, he sent forth His spirit. V. Jesus cried with a loud voice and said, Father, into your hands I commend my spirit. And having bowed his head, he sent forth His spirit.
