Maundy Thursday begins the countdown to the culmination of the Holy Week, the celebration of Resurrection and life. The word Maundy has originated in C14 from Middle English maunde “the Last Supper”, which in its turn comes from Latin mandatum “commandment”, referring to the new commandment Jesus gave to his disciples:
I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.(Jn 13:34)
And so our excellent Organist Jana Zariņa has created a piece of music for this time and this day.
the music I created 2 mornings ago was inspired by spring and the hymn “I heard the voice of Jesus say”. while the whole world is changing, i really hope you’ll find some peace listening to it. <3Jana
