'Blóð várs herra Jesv Christi kom til Niðar ós' ('The blood of our Lord Jesus Christ came to Nidaros') - with these words the Icelandic Annales regii for 1165 record the arrival of a drop of Christ’s blood in Nidaros, today’s Trondheim, in Norway, and, if the information is correct, then it was in fact one of the first places to receive such a prominent relic.

The chant cycle for the Susceptio sanguinis feast, called today the 'Holy Blood office', has survived in just one manuscript. It consists of ten parchment folios, and is all that remains of a book with chants for the Divine office. This antiphonary was written between 1250 and 1275, probably for Nidaros cathedral.

Schola Sanctae Sunnivae and conductor Anne Kleivset have worked on this material for many years, and they give here the first complete recording of the 'Holy Blood office'.
