O Cross of Christ Immortal Tree

O Faithful Cross, You Stand Unmoved

O Cross of Christ Immortal Tree was composed by the Benedictine Nuns of Stanbrook Abbey. When it was first published, the Nuns of the Conventus of Our Lady of Consolation were living in their Victorian era Stanbrook Abbey in Worcestershire, UK. Recently, that location was sold and the Sisters established a new home in the North York Moors National Park. With the aid of patrons and friends, they plan to eventually add a new Abbey Church, Monastic Retreat House, and library. O Cross of Christ Immortal Tree is sung to the tune: Saint Flavian, adapted from the setting of Psalm 132 in John Day's Psalter of 1562. In the Liturgy of the Hours it is used on September 14, the Feast of the Triumph of the Cross.
