MAUNDY THURSDAY, APRIL 1
6 pm: The Liturgy of Maundy Thursday -
On Maundy Thursday, we recall Jesus’ last night with his disciples, when he washed their feet and gave them his Body and Blood in the form of Bread and Wine. The service concludes with the procession of the Reserved Sacrament to the Garden of Repose and the Stripping of the Altar. The Reverend Peter Thompson, Associate Rector for Formation and Liturgy, preaches. Download the worship leaflet to follow along: https://bit.ly/STB_MaundyThursday-4-1-2021
Musical Notes: The rich musical offerings at this service travel the way from the serene and transporting organ prelude, Olivier Messiaen's "Le Banquet Celeste" to Psalm 22 chanted to plainsong while the altar is stripped to conclude the service. Repertoire includes "Ubi Caritas" in two settings (Taizé chant and Maurice Duruflé), and the chant "Pange Lingua" traditionally sung on this day for over 700 years.
