Based on the monastic prayer service of vigils, Tenebrae is a simple, yet powerful choral service sung by the Choir of Men and Boys.
Tenebrae is a Latin word meaning “shadows”, and begins with lit candles which, one by one, are extinguished until we are in darkness. The service is entirely sung by the choir, and the congregation is present to meditate and reflect, see the evening light flicker and fade through the colored glass, and hear the choir sing music of loss, yearning, peace, and hope.
This service lasts one hour and is free and open to the public.
