Templar Chant (12th Century MSS, Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem)


 "Crucem sanctam subiit, 
qui infernum confregit, 
accinctus est potentia, 
surrexit die tertia. Alleluia. 
Lapidem quem reprobaverunt aedeficantes 
factus est caput anguli, alleluia" 

"He bore the Holy Cross, 
who broke the power of hell; 
He was girded with power, 
He rose again the third day. Alleluia 
The stone that the architects rejected 
became the cornerstone."
