Music at St. James Cathedral

Tallis – Lamentations of Jeremiah
Poulenc – Tenebrae factae sunt
Allegri – Miserere mei, Deus

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 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”). This sacred liturgy is open to all; a freewill offering will be collected to benefit the ongoing work of St. James Cathedral. The Very Reverend Michael G. Ryan, presider.
