Tenebrae (Service)
Tenebrae (Latin for "shadows" or "darkness") is a Christian religious service celebrated within Western Christianity on the evening before or early morning of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday, which are the last three days of Holy Week. The distinctive ceremony of Tenebrae is the gradual extinguishing of candles while a series of readings and psalms is chanted or recited.
Tenebrae services are celebrated by only some parishes of the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church, of the Polish National Catholic Church, of Anglicanism, of other Protestant churches such as Lutheranism, and of Western Rite Orthodoxy within the Eastern Orthodox Church.

Basilica Tenebrae service illuminates Good Friday darkness - TheCatholicSpirit.com : TheCatholicSpirit.com
The Good Friday Tenebrae service at the Basilica of St. Mary never ceases to be a moving experience for Johan van Parys, who has directed the devotion for the past 16 years. During one section of the hour-long service, a large wooden cross is passed across the crowd, from hand to hand, modeled after the tradition in many European towns when Catholics would carry the cross through the streets on Good Friday.

andygoodliff: tenebrae service
This evening I organised with the help of Hilary Jappy (a member at Bunyan) a tenebrae service. I was first introduced to the creative delights of a tenebrae service by Maggi, when Hannah and I made a visit to Robinson College Chapel back in 2005. Ever since, I've hoped to find an opportunity to plan a similar like service. So thanks to Maggi (we borrow your structure), Geoff for some of the music ideas, to the person who put together this version of the service and all those involved tonight. Here's what we did :- As people arrived ‘Passio’ - Sanctuary, The Heart Has Its Reasons [track 8, 8.25min] Introduction and Explanation When I Survey the Wondrous Cross (verses 1, 3, 4) 1. THE SHADOW OF BETRAYAL R4: (Psalm 41:9) A reading from the Psalms: Even my close friend, whom I trusted, he who shared my bread, has lifted up his heel against me. R2: (Matthew 26:6-25) Jesus was in Bethany in the home of a man known as Simon the Leper, a woman came to him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table.
