The liturgy of the Christian Holy Week has inspired centuries of music from diverse composers. In Music for Christian Holy Week, airing Friday, March 25, 2016 at 12 p.m. on Classical 91.5, host Angela Mariani explores music for Holy Week. This includes  the Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday services leading up to Easter, drawing from a melting pot of time and geography, rites and liturgies of the Christian tradition including a brand new recording from Capella Romana of medieval Byzantine chant from Jerusalem’s Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
