Tenebrae 2018

This clip features some highlights from Tenebrae, which took place on Wednesday evening of Holy Week. After the strepitus, or "great noise", which symbolizes the earthquake at the moment of Christ's death on the cross, you will see that the return of the candle to the Sanctuary was captured by the camera with an interesting (and unintended) effect.

The parish's Tenebrae Hearse was created by one of the parishioners over thirty years ago. His youngest daughter, now a member of the Latin Mass choir, sang the haunting descant in Gregorio Allegri's Miserere during this year's ceremony.
