Published:

Description: No. 12 of Tenebrae Responsories, for Good Friday.
This moving work forms one of several responsories for Tenebrae. Like the other reponsories, this includes a verse, the response, a verse and another response. The response features a low setting for Altos, Tenors and Basses, and suprises the listener with a piercing treble/soprano note on the words "Si est dolor similis sicut dolor meus". Many people liken this to a cry of pain, as the words translate to "If there is any sorrow like my sorrow".

Carl Proske spezifies in Musica Divina this source: "Officium Hebdomadae sanctae Thomae Ludovici de Victoria Abulensis. Romae apud Angelum Gardanum. 1585."
