Some insights about Easter Triduum

I've mentioned before that there are many words behind the notes of Easter Triduum. Here are just a couple of examples:


- The final note of Gethsemane is the single chime of a Triangle. This is there to depict Judas' kiss, just before Jesus' arrest


- Just before the triangle sounds, there is a slow passage played by the Trombone. This is about the prophecy and I have always attached the words "Put your trust in God, Jesus will return, Amen" to it. This passage is repeated in parts during the early sections of Risen. I can always hear the echoes of "Put your trust in God".


- Suffering Servant is made up of three main sections. 1. Jesus' trial and sentence 2. Jesus carrying his cross to his crucifixion and 3. Jesus's time on the cross. When I listen to this I often shed a tear as I contemplate it all. In the third section, when Jesus is on the cross dying, I have imagine words behind some of the strings notes which depict God comforting and loving Jesus. I am most emotional about this part.
