The Office of Tenebrae

Each year during Holy Week, St. James Cathedral observes the office of Tenebrae (“shadows”) in which the sufferings of Christ are foretold in the Lamentations of Jeremiah (setting by Thomas Tallis) and commemorated in the slow extinguishing of candles. The evening culminates in Gregorio Allegri’s stirring setting of Psalm 51, Miserere mei, Deus (“Have mercy on me, O God”). Music is provided by the Cathedral Cantorei, under the direction of Joseph Adam. The Very Reverend Michael G. Ryan, presider.
