Holy Week Music Recorded at St. Peter's Basilica

St Peters Holy Week Concert 690x450

For the last year, choral music, along with Masses themselves, have been limited at churches around the world. During this Holy Week, two German teens took advantage of the empty St. Peter's Basilica to record hymns to share with the world. The purpose of the recording was to inspire those who cannot travel to Rome this year for the holiest week of the Christian calendar, as stated in this Crux article. The list of 18 songs includes classic and modern musical selections, including the "Credo" in Latin, "O Head Full of Blood and Wounds," "True God, We Believe Thee," "Ave Maria" and Leonhard Cohen's "Hallelujah."Click here to learn more about the pair and to listen to the beautiful music!

The MCC office will be closed the remainder of the week through Monday, April 5 in observance of the Easter holiday. We wish you and your families a blessed, healthy Holy Week.
