Palm Sunday Evening: Bach’s St Matthew Passion

We have rule in our home- no entertainment in Holy Week. This follows a custom of a bygone era (for now…) where Holy Week was taken as a retreat with more lay attendance at the divine office, public and private devotions and passion plays.

The Passion of St Matthew was read at Mass today so why not enhance your interior recollection by listening to Bach’s sublime setting of the text.
