Lenten Listening Calendar
Music is an integral part of Lent.
The season of Lent (the time between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday) is a time when we prepare our hearts and minds for the death and resurrection of Jesus.
From Medieval chants, Bach's liturgical music, and Martin Luther's hymns - to more contemporary hymns, there is a rich selection of music for the Lenten season.
Just as we learn about eras of history through music, we also learn about seasons of the church year through music.
For Lent, we immerse ourselves in music that quiets our hearts and minds - music that puts us in a contemplative and peaceful state. We memorize hymns rich with scripture. We place ourselves back in the early church as we listen to the Latin mass.
We ultimately are drawn closer to God and his most precious gift to us, his Only Son.
