Bruckner composed this motet, which uses the gradual of Maundy Thursday , on 25 May Bruckner dedicated the work to Oddo Loidol, one of his students.
The work in 79 bars in D minor is set for mixed choir a cappella. It takes about five minutes to perform. In the first part bars 1—19 , till " mortem autem crucis ", the choir is singing in homophony. It expresses in sombre lines how inhuman is God's demand to implacable obedience to the death, even the death on the cross.

It appeared first at Tenebrae of Maundy Thursday, but was not recited in full, ending with The following day at Tenebrae of Good Friday it was sung from the beginning until Up until the reform of the Holy Week liturgy promulgated by Pius XII in these Tenebrae services were sung in the late afternoon and evening of the previous day, and were well attended by the laity.
