From the tenebrae service for Holy Saturday, here is Victoria’s “O Vos Omnes” sung by Harry Christophers and the Sixteen:

O vos omnes qui transitis per viam:
attendite et videte
si est dolor sicut dolor meus.
Attendite, universi populi, et videte dolorem meum.
Si est dolor similis sicut dolor meus.

O you all who pass by the way:
Turn and see
if there is sorrow like my sorrow.
Turn, all peoples, and see my sorrow.
If there is any sorrow similar to my sorrow.
