Tenebrae (Latin for “darkness”) is a liturgical service intended to impress upon the minds of worshipers the drama and sacrifice of the crucifixion of Jesus. It is characterized by gradual extinguishing of candles situated on the hearse (a 15 candle candelabra).  The loud noise at the end of the service after the Christ Candle has exited signals the “closing of the book” or “the closing of the tomb.” Do watch until the very end to experience the entire service.
