Music and Memories of Good Friday, please?

Let's make this year a good one.
As somebody requested, I moved this thread to music, since it deals with music and tradition.

Maybe if more Christians truly followed the words of Christ this Earth would have a chance for a good year.


Shame on you President Bush. Learn from Jesus that violence is not the way.

"Learn from Jesus that violence is not the way".

Well, much as I find violence abhorrent, without the violence of the crucifixion would anyone remember Jesus today? No crucifixion, no resurrection either.    :(

Jesus did die for something he believed in. Take that as you will.

It is a lovely day in Nashville today. :-)

Here are lyrics to a song that my husband, Keith Johnson, wrote this year. It's meant for Holy Week.

Barabus

Just like an army that was come to set us free
I remember where I was when you rode in.
The banners flying high, almost reaching to the sky
Palm branches marked the path where you had been.

We cry Barabus, give us Barabus.

I think about the way the soldiers make us haul their load.
I think about the tax we have to pay.
They beat us, they rape us:
I don't really want to know.
I believed you were gonna make them pay.

We cry Barabus, give us Barabus.

Crucify Him, crucify Him. (this is repeated for a verse)

We cry Barabus, give us Barabus.

I watch you pray, the price you pay to save us
Even though the world's hatred is all inside us.
It's as though we are willing if it'll unleash your anger,
To be wrong, to be criminal, even to die.
But we can't cry for mercy when we pray for vengeance,
When we think that forgiveness is some kind of weakness,
When the shame of the cross is covered by you,
Father, we don't know what we do.

We cry Barabus, give us Barabus.

His notes at the bottom of the page say only 4th fret Am-F several times E - Am- F

if you are Catholic, it is probably too late, but you can get a plenary indulgence for going to the stations of the cross today. I know this is true because I read it somewhere...I wish I could have made it this afternoon. I don't know if you have to go to the official stations or can do them on your own but it is just one of those things that seems worthwhile to me. mg

My musical Good Friday memory is The Messiah at The Albert Hall in 1970.

I have often listened to "Jesus Christ, Superstar" on Good Friday.

More traditional:
Were you there when they crucified my Lord? (Our Palm Sunday anthem this year)
When I survey the wondrous cross
Oh sacred head now (sore) wounded
Alas and did my Savior bleed? (to the old Scottish tune, Martyrdom)

Sacred Harp:
Morning: "He dies, the friend of sinners dies"

Simple Good Friday Hymn from my childhood:

At the cross her station keeping
Stood the mournful mother weeping
Close to Jesus to the last.

Who can contemplate our mother
At the feet of Christ our brother
......?

I did so much music in the past week that it's become a blur. National Catholic week - we had church Thursday, Friday, Saturday night, and Sunday morning. Everything from Mozart to "Just a Closer Walk with Thee." We have an excellent choir, and people packed the church. On Easter Sunday, they had to put up folding chairs for the visitors.

Saturday night, the Easter vigil, is the blockbuster. We started in darkness, and people passed a flame from candle to candle. Long streamers of white fabric had been draped from the vault to the pillars. (This involves two people wearing safety harnesses going up into the attic, the area between the vault and the roof.) Two adults were baptized in the pool, and six people joined. I forget what else we did - as I say, it's a blur. About two hours into the service, a guest turned to a friend of mine and said, "Do you do this every week?"

It still makes me chuckle.

When I was a teenager, "Jesus Christ, Superstar" was how my family celebrated Easter. The album got very scratchy over the years, and a couple years ago I bought it on cd. Somehow it isn't the same without the hisses and pops.

Sinsull's post sounds like an English translation of

Stabat Mater Dolorosa.

Messiah at the Albert Hall for me too. One of our teachers got tickets for the Christian Union at school. I think there were a couple of intervals, long enough to walk across the road into the park.
