Good Friday/Holy Saturday playlist

Tunes to help survive the Triduum (in no particular order):

A long time favorite, set to the tune of “O Sacred Head Sore Wounded” is Paul Simon’s “American Tune.” Beautiful and haunting. Totally Good Friday.

Had I more time and energy, I’d add more, but that’s it for now. Time to make dinner and then to bed. What’s on your Triduum play list?

Good Friday

“The Coming” by R.S. Thomas
 
And God held in his hand
A small globe. Look, he said.
The son looked. Far off,
As though through water, he saw
A scorched land of fierce
Colour. The light burned
There; crusted buildings
Cast their shadows; a bright
Serpent, a river
Uncoiled itself, radiant
With slime.

On a bare
Hill, a bare tree saddened
The sky. Many people
Held out their thin arms
To it, as though waiting
For a vanished April
To return to its crossed
Boughs. The son watched
Them. Let me go there, he said.
