Dedicated to Benjamin Nicholas and the choir of Merton College, Oxford, on the occasion of the 750th anniversary of the foundation of the college.
Vexilla Regis prodeunt; fulget Crucis mysterium, quo carne carnis conditor suspensus est patibulo.
The banners of the king advance; the mystery of the cross shines forth, through which the creator of the flesh was in his flesh hung upon a cross.
(Translation: Dr Scott Scullion, Fellow and Tutor in Classics, Worcester College, Oxford.)
