My last Triduum as a church musician

“The LORD said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, Tell the whole community of music ministers: On the night of the Mass of the Lord’s Supper, with no time to cook, you must procure for your family a pizza, one per household unless you eat a lot in which case you might want two or three. You shall not order pepperoni, lest it give you heartburn during the Mandatum, nor anchovies, lest you offend your neighbor.

If a family is too small for a whole pizza, you shall stop at the drive-through for a burger in the evening twilight. This is how you are to eat it: with your concert dress on, organmasters on your feet and your baton in hand; you shall eat like those who are in flight.

It is the Passover of the LORD.”
