Christus Factus Est

The Gradual



This is one of the most sublime pieces of liturgical antiphons here in a setting by Anton Bruckner.

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.

Christ became obedient for us unto death, even to the death of the cross. For which cause, God also hath exalted Him and hath given Him a Name which is above all names.
