Evocation of the long and beautiful Ambrosian antiphon that precedes the adoration of the Holy Cross on Good Friday.
More than music, it is a sound atmosphere that ideally retraces the phrases of the antiphon. Here is the Latin text with references to the sections of the piece of music:

0:00 Ténebrae fàctae sunt / sùper univérsam térram
dum crucifixérunt Jésum Judaei.
Et circa hòram nonam / exclamàvit Jésus vòce màgna:
Déus méus, quid me dereliquìsti?

9:00 Déus méus, quid me dereliquìsti? (repeated in a new section)

10:37 Tunc ùnus ex milìtibus
làncea làtus éjus perforàvit.

12:31 Et inclinàto càpite / emìsit spìritum.

13:30 Ecce terraemòtus fàctus est màgnus
nam vélum témpli scìssum est
et òmnis térra trémuit.

16:32 Et inclinàto càpite / emìsit spìritum.
