Project Hildegard #42

I dedicate this chant to the victims of the earthquake in Turkey and Syria. My thoughts are with you.

o cruor sanguinis

O blood of blood that sounded on high, when all the elements joined together in lamentation and with trembling, because the blood of their creator had touched them. Anoint us for our weariness.

NB: You will see that there are no neumes in the manuscript for the final line of this chant. I have therefore taken an educated guess at what the melody could have been.
