Tenebrae 2013 (VIDEOS) Dominican Schola

March 28, 2013

Here are a couple of videos from our Dominican Schola at the Dominican House of Studies from the Office of Tenebrae. The first is a Corsican Stabat Mater from the 14th century. The second is the Filiae Jerusalem of Francesco Soriano (1549-1621)

Fr. James Moore OP from the Province of the Holy Name (Western Province) is the schola director. You are invited to join us for Holy Week 2013 at the Dominican House of Studies.

1. At the cross her station keeping,
stood the mournful mother weeping,
close to Jesus to the last.
2. Through her soul, of joy bereaved,
bowed with anguish, deeply grieved,
now at length the sword hath passed.
3. Oh how sad and sore distressed
was that mother highly blessed,
of the sole-begotten One!

but weep for yourselves, and for your children.
For behold, the days shall come, wherein they will say:
Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that have not borne,
and the paps that have not given suck.
Then shall they begin to say to the mountains:
Fall upon us: and to the hills: Cover us.
For if in the green wood they do these things,
what shall be done in the dry?
