And when the Sabbath was past…
Since we find ourselves still within Eastertide, the Great Fifty days, we must post Alamire’s singing a part of Taverner’s Dum transisset Sabbatum. If it does not give you chills, you are not listening.
Dum transisset Sabbatum Maria Magdalene et Maria Jacobi et Salome emerunt aromata, ut venientes ungerent Jesum, alleluia. Et valde mane una sabbatorum veniunt ad monumentum orto jam sole. Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto.
And when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene and Mary [the mother of] James, and Salome brought spices, that coming they might anoint Jesus, alleluia. And very early the first of the Sabbath, they came to the monument, the sun being now risen. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. [Mark 16:1-2]
