Ash Wednesday

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday which begins the liturgical season of Lent.  Those in liturgical churches are likely used to reading/chanting Psalm 51 (the Miserere) on Ash Wednesday.  A few years ago I got turned on to a UK choral group called The Sixteen. They are truly magnificent.  Below you can listen to some proper music for Ash Wednesday.  The psalm is sung in latin but has subtitles.  You can see a latin-english side by side here, if you are curious.  For my readers who are unfamiliar with the liturgical Christian tradition so don’t really understand what Lent is all about, this should help answer some questions.

About Kleiner

Associate Vice Provost and Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Utah State University. I teach across the curriculum, but am most interested in continental philosophy, ancient and medieval philosophy as well as Catholic thought, all of which might be summed up as an interest in the ressourcement tradition (returning in order to make progress). I also enjoy spending time thinking about liberal education and its ends.
