Tenebrae on Good Friday

Saturday, April 11, 2009
Below is an edited video of two responsories from Matins, and of the Benedictus sung during Lauds, which are all part of the Office of Tenebrae celebrated in Blackfriars Oxford on Good Friday morning.


The veil of the temple was torn, and all the earth shook.
The thief cried from the cross, saying: 'Remember me, Lord, when you come into your kingdom'.
Amen, I say to you, today you shall be with me in paradise.
Remember me, Lord...

They betrayed me into the hands of sinners, and threw me amongst the wicked, and they had no pity on my soul.
Strong men have gathered against me, and like giants they stand over me.
The kings of the earth stood by, and princes gathered together.
And like giants...

Lawrence Lew OP
