Tenebrae at St. Joan of Arc

After Good Friday Service, St. Joan of Arc had a Tenebrae Service.
This was quite a different kind of Tenebrae.  There was no loud banging at the end when the Christ Candle  is hidden.  Actually, they blew out the Christ Candle.  The readings and the responses, which were sung, were different.  It seemed a rather cheerful Tenebrae then what I've experienced before.

First Reading:  Lamentations 3:1-6
First Response:  Amazing Grace

2nd Reading:  Isaiah 50:4-9
2nd Response:  What Wondrous Love

3rd Reading: Phil 2:5-11
3rd Response:  Beautiful Savior

4th Reading:  John 19:25-27
4th Response:  Stabat Mater

5th Reading:  Matthew 27:39-43
5th Response:  Adoramus Te

6th Reading:  Mark 15:33-39
6th Response:  Silence

7th Reading:  1 Peter 2:21-25

Then everyone recited the Our Father.
It was beautifully done, just more cheerful...
