The Office of Tenebrae
Wednesday, April 12th at 7:30 pm

Tenebrae (the Latin word for "darkness" or "shadows") has for centuries been applied to the ancient monastic night and early morning services (Matins and Lauds) of the last three days of Holy Week. Apart from chanting the Lamentations of the Prophet Jeremiah, the most conspicuous feature of the service is the gradual extinguishing of candles and other lights in the church until only a single candle, considered a symbol of our Lord, remains. In between the readings and Lamentations, the choir sings meditative choral music. This unique Liturgy is a favorite of many at the Cathedral.
