New hymn for Wednesday (Holy Week)

Just a heads up for everyone taking part in Vespers at St. Monica’s this Wednesday: with our move into Holy Week, the hymn we are singing will be different than the hymn during Lent.  It’s a little tricky, so I put together some practice audios.  Try singing each verse a couple of times – it might take a while, but once you get the melody locked down, it’s not too bad.  Be sure to pay attention to the qualisma (squiggly note) – it indicates that the note before it gets a “more weight” in its expression.

Have a good last few days of Lent!
