Event description

Description

Join Portico’s community choir, The NewQuay Singers, in our annual Tenebrae Service to mark Good Friday. Dating from the 4thC, in this mystical service the Gospel of St Matthew from Christ’s arrest in the Garden of Gethsemane to his death at Golgotha, is divided into a series of “Shadows”. Interspersed between these the choir sings movements from Cherubini’s Requiem composed to commemorate the death of Louis XVI and first performed in 1819. As the service progresses the lighting is gradually dimmed until in complete darkness the last passage is read and the great Strepitus sounded as the ‘..the veil of the temple was rent in twain’. The choir then sings the final movement and the congregation then leaves in silence. A dramatic and emotional celebration of the events of Good Friday.

Suggested donation £10.
