The Introit for the Maundy Thursday Evening Mass: Nos autem gloriari

Below is Giovanni Vianini's version of Nos autem gloriari, the Introit for Maundy Thursday (it's also used on September 14's feast,  In Exaltatione Sanctæ Crucis  - The Exaltation of the Holy Cross).   It's a beautiful song, with texts taken from the wonderful Galatians 6:14 and also from Psalm 67; see full texts below the video.



Here are the words in Latin and English, with citations from Galatians and Psalms:
Nos autem gloriari oportet in Cruce Domini nostri Iesu Christi:  in quo est salus, vita, et resurrectio nostra: per quem salus, vita, et resurrectio nostra: per quem salvati, et liberati sumus.

Deus misereatur nostri, et benedicat nobis: illuminet vultum suum super nos, et misereatur nostri.


But it behooves us to glory in the cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ: in Whom is our salvation, life, and resurrection; by whom we are saved and delivered.

May God have mercy on us, and bless us: may He cause the light of His countenance to shine upon us; and may He have mercy on us.

(Galatians 6:14: But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

Psalm 67:1: May God be gracious to us and bless us, and make his face to shine upon us and have mercy on us....)


Here's the chant score:





This is another Gregorian piece for which Palestrina wrote choral music. That doesn't seem to be online - but there is a stunning choral version of this text by 20th-Century French composer Alfred Desenclos:
