The Thursday in Holy Week. It is part of the Triduum, or three holy days before Easter. It comes from the Latin mandatum novum, “new commandment,” from Jn 13:34. The ceremony of washing feet was also referred to as “the Maundy.” Maundy Thursday celebrations also commemorate the institution of the eucharist by Jesus “on the night he was betrayed.”

The choir will offer the following music:

Orlando Gibbons:  Drop, Drop, Slow Tears
Peter Latona:  Mandatum
Maurice Duruflé:  Ubi caritas
William Byrd:  Ave verum corpus
