Good Friday, when I was a child, was a day when everything was closed. It was a solemn occasions. Almost the last day of lent and we always attended church services. One of the memories that stays with me is the wonderful church music. Bach's St. Matthews Passion has always been a favourite.
Recently I came upon the music of a young group of Nuns. They have decided to adopt the Benidictine order, returning to a very traditional form. It is strange to see a group of very young women dressed in a habit, in fact it is strange to see young Nuns at all today.
One of the ways they serve is to make and embroider vestments for priests and I see they have a 2 year waiting list. The other way they serve is their music.
