HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE

This week has been a musical marathon for members of a choir like myself.  We sang last week on Palm Sunday, then on Wednesday we did Tenebrae, then we sang at the Holy Thursday Mass, then sang again on Good Friday Mass and last night we sang at the Easter Vigil. 

 

Tenebrae was a special service of prayers and songs.  We used to do "Service of the Shadows" for Tenebrae but our new Choir Director decided to do something differently last year and this year.  We had been doing the Shadows for the last 30 plus years.  This year's Tenebrae was the best!  We did a very special hymn called "Miserere" in Latin by Gregorio Allegri (1582-1652).  This music piece was originally sung at the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican by the monks almost four hundred years ago and the music piece never left the Sistine Chapel.  It was so special, they didn't want anybody to know it till Mozart in his infinite wisdom heard it there, went home and played it, then went back to Sistine Chapel to make sure he got it right.  Of course, that's the end of the secret "Miserere".  The last piece we sang at Tenebrae was titled Pieta by Tom Kendzia and was quite a moving and inspiring musical rendition.

 

With all the gloom and doom that we are hearing lately, it's nice to take our minds off real estate and just enjoy life with family and friends.  I'm off to see my grandchildren today.

 

Happy Easter to all..........

William - Happy Easter!  Don't you feel good making a difference?  I love it and my husband is very supportive.  As a matter of fact, he was the one who encouraged me all the time.
