PASCHAL TRIDUUM, MUSIC FOR THE by the Schola Cantorum
Schola Cantorum of St. Peter's in the Loop; J. Michael Thompson, Director
Music for the Paschal Triduum is a recording of chant and polyphony for the "three-days-which-are-one-day": Holy Thursday night, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter Sunday. Using music from the Western (Roman, Anglican, and Lutheran) and Eastern (Slav-Byzantine churches of Carpatho-Rus, Ukraine, and Russia) Churches, the Schola Cantorum conveys the mystery and majesty of the celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The melodies associated with the texts and ritual actions of the Triduum both evoke the memory of the event, and when included in the celebration, help make it happen in the present.
Selections are:Ubi caritas
Lord of Lords, Adored by Angels
Son of God, Accept Me This Day
Irmos IX, Great and Holy Thursday
Passion According to St. John
The Wise Thief
The Canticle of Moses
Irmos IX, Great and Holy Saturday
Ad coenam Agni providi
Christ Rising Again
Doxastikon, Paschal Aposticha (Carpatho-Rusyn chant), and Doxastikon, Paschal Aposticha (setting by the Monks of New Skete)
