Holy Week
Tuesday, April 08, 2014 by Kari Roche

FROM THE LOFT

 

Holy Week is coming! Palm Sunday through Easter Morning is the most beloved time for us churchy types. It is the time when all ministries must work in perfect synchronization. During this time, no two liturgies are alike and all are different from Masses or services during the rest of the year. So thought and preparation is essential.

Music is integral to all of this. It sets the tone, the atmosphere, the place of each ritual.  I met a young man who is a composer, and he trekked to California to begin a career as a movie music composer.  But he found that he didn't like it because he wanted to compose music that he created, not music that served the plot of a movie. I understood his thinking, but it made me realize that one of the things I really love about church music is the service to the scripture-the plot. So-oddly, one of the most important aspects of the music especially during Holy Thursday and Good Friday is silence. It's that roaring silence that can be so dramatic and deafening. THEN when the Glory to God is sung at the Easter Vigil for the first time since Ash Wednesday, and the trumpets sound and our voices lift in wild acclaim, it is glorious! Wow! what fun!

The Triduum, Holy Thursday, Good Friday and the Easter Vigil on Saturday night is truly a spiritual and sonic journey. We remember, we mourn, we exult.  Come with us.
