August 04, 2013 – “Music for Vespers”

Of all the hours in the Divine Office, or Liturgy of the Hours, none has had such a wealth of music composed for it more than vespers. In this show Susan features music for Vespers including a range of music from Gregorian chant, work by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and some excerpts from modern settings of Vespers.

Thanksgiving – Program 031

With Thanksgiving in mind, Lynn Bauman presents various interpretations of the classic hymn, Te Deum (Thee, O God, we praise).

Te Deum has been in regular use in the Roman Catholic Church for centuries in the Office of Readings found in the Liturgy of the Hours, and in thanksgiving to God for a special blessing such as the election of a pope, the consecration of a bishop, the canonization of a saint, a religious profession, the publication of a treaty of peace, a royal coronation, etc. It is sung either after Mass or the Divine Office or as a separate religious ceremony.
