TRANSLATION

O cruor sanguinis
qui in alto sonuisti,
cum omnia elementa
se implicuerunt
in lamentabilem vocem
cum tremore,
quia sanguis Creatoris sui
illa tetigit,
ungue nos
de languoribus nostris.
O stream of blood
which you cried on high
when all the elements
enfolded themselves
within the voice wailing
with dread,
because the blood of their Creator
had spattered them:
anoint us
against our frailty.

 

Editorial Notes

The only source for this antiphon (Riesencodex) is incomplete. The final three lines of text (beginning with illa tetigit) have blank staves.
