The liturgical celebration of the Cross was first and foremost linked to Good Friday, but later the Cross was given two feast days if its own - 14th September (the Exaltation of the Cross) and 3rd May (the Invention of the Cross).

Interspersed with the text are works by Dunstable and Palestrina, and Renaissance Motets - one by Gombert and two movements by Clemens non Papa - which are fine examples of the rich, developed polyphony of the mid-sixteenth century.
