Vexilla regis prodeunt, S185

composer
1864

 
Venantius Fortunatus’s hymn Vexilla regis prodeunt introduces Via Crucis, but in the earlier piano work upon the same theme, which also exists for orchestra, the procession is not that of the Via Dolorosa, but a real crusaders’ march, full of power and vigour, with just one gentler variation before the coda. Vexilla regis prodeunt, too, remained unpublished until 1978.

from notes by Leslie Howard 1990
