If Maundy Thursday hosts “one of” the most dramatic liturgies of the year, then surely the Great Vigil is “the” most dramatic liturgy. First we gather around a fire, telling the stories of our ancestors – Jonah in the belly of the whale, the Jewish exodus across the Red Sea – all are meant to prime us for the greatest triumph yet: Jesus’ resurrection. The choir sings 20th century French organist-composer Jean Langlais’s dramatic Messe Solennelle.
