Good Friday: Friday of the Passion of the Lord

This year, we sang the Good Friday liturgy accappella including a setting of the Passion according to Saint John by Fr. Samual Weber. Here are some excerpts:

Responsorial Psalm

Acclamation before the Gospel

Passion according to Saint John

Veneration of the Cross

At the Cross her Station Keeping

O Sacred Head Surrounded

Venido Cristianos


Vexilla Regis

Jesus, Remember Me

My God, My God

Sing My Tongue

Dios mio, Dios mio

Were You There?

Fr. Samuel Weber, O.S.B., has set the Passion of Saint John to music so that it may be sung.
