Holy Week in Christianity is the week just before Easter. It is also the last week of Lent, in the West, – Palm Sunday, Holy Monday, Holy Tuesday, Holy Wednesday (Spy Wednesday), Maundy Thursday (Holy Thursday), Good Friday (Holy Friday), and Holy Saturday – are all included. However, Easter Day, which begins the season of Eastertide, is not. However, traditions observing the Easter Triduum may overlap or displace part of Holy Week or Easter itself within that additional liturgical period.
During Holy Week, proceeding Easter, many Sicilian villages celebrate with costumed processions through the streets. Often accompanied by music on themes of the Passion, these popular parade ceremonies have roots in agrarian pre-Christian rites. The songs are mostly sung in distorted Latin, though some are in Italian, and feature a polyphonic structure and choral style with soloing. Some of the songs included on this album are derivations of ancient liturgical hymns, while others are lighter, more modern compositions.
