Watch and Pray – Music for Holy Week

The choral music of the week leading up to Easter, known in the Western tradition as Holy Week, are among the most beautiful and emotional settings in the Christian church’s great legacy of music. The choir of St Mary Magdalene’s maintains a proud tradition of singing at all of the great festivals of Holy Week.

There are the cries of 'Hosanna' on Palm Sunday, the ancient chant of Tenebrae, a unique service held in deepening darkness, and the Footwashing on Maundy Thursday. The shouts of 'Crucify' and the Veneration of the Cross on Good Friday and the jubilant Alleluias of Easter Day bring the celebration to a fitting climax.

Enjoy the musical highlights of this most important week of the Church’s year.
