Today’s Cantor’s Corner focuses on the Passion Chorale, or “O Sacred Head Now Wounded.” The Passion narrative stays in our minds and souls all week, beginning last Sunday at Passion/Palm Sunday, until Friday when all goes dark. Of course, we don’t pretend to not know where this is all headed – the Resurrection. But for now we remember this very human act of love.
This hymn reminds me of an opportunity: how’s your memory box? We have a lifetime to add to it – this would be a good text/tune to include. We don’t know when we will need to make use of what we keep in that box, but I do know that hymns and psalms would be extremely helpful. Just a thought.
I hope you find this video and recording helpful for your journey this Holy Week.
