I was going to suggest 'Pub With No Beer' but the Irish laws have just been changed to allow drinking on Good Friday

I should think that Bach's St Matthew Passion trumps the lot. It's very long though, and the one complete performance of it that I went to had a lunch hour. :-) The St John Passion comes in at about hours and is superb. So that's what I'd go for. If you want just one bit, Tears Of Grief at the end of the Matthew Passion would be good on your desert island.

Technically Good Friday is in 'The Week Before Easter' so very appropriate!

Sidney Carter's "Bitter was the Night" - though perhaps more exactly appropriate for Holy Thursday

Joanne in Cleveland (who sang it for Palm Sunday)

Our choir's favorite is Behold the Wood, by Milwaukee boy Dan Schutte, a former member of the St. Louis Jesuits. We do it with piano, which sounds better to me - and there's a great bass/baritone part that allows for a suitable display of machismo.

I'm glad we don't have restrictions on alcohol on Good Friday. I was mighty dry after the long liturgy at noon. I needed gin, sushi, and a good nap to be in good voice for the evening Taize service.
Cheers!

Two from Sydney Carter (no relation, though I have tried to prove otherwise) already, but Friday Morning is another.

well, just back from a very very long service for pseudo midnight mass. do people creating these services not have stopwatches? the highlight was when they said some alleluias and then a toddler piped up with an alleluia and then on the other side of the church another one did. then the first one started singing ba ba black sheep...

WE have used "Were you there when they crucified my Lord" for our Good Friday service, and "Walk with me o my Lord" during the procession of witness through the village.

What about Ave Verum Corpus (Mozart's setting of course)? The text seems spot-on for Good Friday and it's the most perfect of all pieces of music. I've told Mrs Steve that I'll allow a good local choir to sing it at my funeral as my one-and only nod to non-secularism. I'm hoping they'll have at least 30 more years to rehearse it!

"When I survey the wondrous cross" to the folk tune 'Waly Waly'. The tune is even in our modern hymnal as an alternative tune.
