Music for Your Holy Week

An absolutely ESSENTIAL CD of music for Holy Week is "Miserere: Music for Holy Week" put out by the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius in Chicago.  Plus, when you buy their CD, you are supporting a great group of men doing great work for the restoration of the sacred.  Here's my favorite piece from their CD, which you can purchase by clicking HERE






Another of my favorite Lenten musical selections of course comes from the monks of St. Meinrad.  Pick up their CD and support the monks by clicking HERE

Here is their "Peter Canticle"







Of course, the Passion of the Christ soundtrack is an amazing collection of music.  My two favorites from that

"Peter Denies Jesus"






And the haunting "It is Done"







And, of course, the mother of all Holy Week music - Allegri's "Miserere"
