7:00 p.m. Tenebrae
The Cathedral Men’s Schola will lead the singing of Tenebrae at 7:00 PM on Good Friday. Tenebrae (Latin for “darkness”) is the name traditionally given to Matins and Lauds (from the Divine Office or Liturgy of the Hours), on each of the last three days of Holy Week. As Tenebrae is no longer an official part of the post-Vatican II Liturgy of the Hours, our Cathedral will combine psalms, readings, and musical responses from these three days in one 50-minute devotional service on April 3rd.
Tenebrae has a penitential tone, with a special emphasis on the Passion of Christ, and is famous for its interplay of light and dark, as candles are gradually extinguished after each reading, lesson, or psalm. The Men’s Schola prepares beautiful music for Tenebrae each year—this is a wonderful opportunity to close Good Friday with a meditation on the Passion.
