MusicTenebrae Service

With Flora Montgomery

Mark Good Friday in a poignant and dramatic way by joining us for the annual Tenebrae Service in Portico. This year, Flora Montgomery will read, in “Shadows” (or instalments), the story of Christ’s journey from the Garden of Gethsemane to his crucifixion at Golgotha. Interspersed between the shadows the choir will sing the Saint Saens Requiem. After each shadow has been read the lights are dimmed a little until, as at the crucifixion, we are plunged into darkness and the great strepitus sounds to mimic the earthquake of that momentous event. Featuring Portico’s community choir – the NewQuay Singers, Richard Campbell (organ), Mary McCabe (soprano), Sarah Richmond (contralto), Conor Breen (Tenor) and David Howes (Baritone).
