BOTH TENEBRAE NIGHTS NOW AVAILABLE FOR HOME USE!
This has been a long project in progress, but BOTH Tenebrae evenings are now available. It is our hope that families who cannot make it for Tenebrae in person, will find it enriching to pray with us in spirit, and even light candles in your home, to pray Tenebrae with the parish choir and clergy.
FULL PARISH RECORDING OF HOLY THURSDAY TENEBRAE FOR USE AT HOME:
Features: Fr. Portzer chanting the lessons from Lamentations of Jeremiah; Allegri’s Miserere Mei at the end
FULL PARISH RECORDING OF HOLY SATURDAY’S TENEBRAE FOR USE AT HOME:
Features: the choral responsories from Victoria, as well as lessons of Jeremiah chanted by Fr. Wolfe.
New Choir CD Available: Lumen Gentium: Advent & Christmas at Mater Dei
The adult choirs of Mater Dei Catholic Church have continued the theme of “light” in relation to our first album, “Lux in Tenebris”, which means “light in darkness”. Christ came into the darkness of the world, steeped in sin, to save us through his passion, death, and resurrection.
So also, at his birth, Simeon proclaimed Him “a light of revelation to the gentiles”, so we have titled our new CD “Lumen Gentium”, meaning “light of nations”.
Thank you for purchasing our music! We hope it edifies your prayer life, and makes your Advent and Christmas meditations on the coming of Christ more fruitful. All our tracks have english translations with the physical CD.
