Resources for Holy Week


The Lament above is taken from Ceílí De Collection - Hymns of Passion and Resurrection: The Story of Holy Week. These songs recount the story of Holy Week using old and new Irish hymns and tunes. The first three tracks, Domhnach na Pailme, Duan Chroí Íosa and Deus Meus lead up to Holy Thursday and the start of the passion of Christ, with tracks Amhrán na Páise and Críost Liom. On Good Friday we hear hymns of lament from the Mother of Jesus, Caoineadh na dTrí Muire and Seacht nDólás na Maighdine Muire. Holy Saturday is captured by two stark, but beautiful tracks Iontas and A Mhaighdean Bheannaithe. Finally, the joy of the Resurrection, of Easter, of Jesus as King, is heard in the last three tracks An tAiséirí, Amhrán na Cásca and Rí an Domhnaigh. You can read more reflections on this HERE.
