Easter Vigil

The Paschal candle represents Christ, the Light of the World.

During the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday night the candle is carried in the procession into the dark church. A new fire, symbolizing our eternal life in Christ, is kindled which lights the candle. The candle, representing Christ himself, is blessed by the priest who then inscribes in it a cross, the first letters and last of the Greek alphabet, (Alpha and Omega `the beginning and the end').

MUSIKAY LENTEN CONCERT

SEVEN LAST WORDS - A LENTEN CONCERT

This Spring Musikay has assembled a small team of fantastic singers with beautiful voices to offer a Lenten inspired music program. Kasia Konstanty, Anne Kae, and Richard Hansen join our Maestro Stephane Potvin in singing the beautiful and inspirational music. The program will consist of Mass for four voices and Ave verum corpus by Williams Byrd, Oculi omnium by Heinrich Schütz, Miserere by Joseph Rheinberger, Hosanna filio David by Tomás Luis de Victoria, Les sept paroles de Notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ sur la croix by Charles Gounod, along with the haunting Stabat Mater Gregorian chant.

Benefiting from the wonderful acoustics of Canadian Martyrs Church in Westdale, the music and voices reverberate in what feels like a celestial vessel. The warmth of the building brings the music to life in ways that the composer probably imagined and likely experienced themselves.

Tickets are available at the door and online: http://musikay.ca/product/last_words/

Join Musikay and Maestro Potvin for this special concert at Canadian Martyrs Catholic Church, in Hamilton.
