30+ Lenten Hymns for Choir with arrangement for different parts

Lenten and Easter Hymns

Lent is a season in the calendar of the Catholic Church wherein Catholic faithful are called to undertake 40 days of intense prayer, fasting and abstinence to commemorate the events of the suffering, death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. In this period, they walk with him spiritually as they try to recount the agony, sufferings, pains and humiliation he underwent for the salvation of humanity. This period begins with the Ash Wednesday and lasts for 40 days (excluding Sunday; the Day of the Lord), with some key and important moments; the Holy Week.

It is necessary that Choristers be fully prepared to beautify the liturgy with beautiful tunes, songs and psalms. Hence, there some Lenten songs that have been carefully put together in a PDF format by an unknown compiler. But, we notice the obvious contribution of Ike Eseka in terms of the editing of some songs, arrangement and the inputting solfa notations to some of these songs.

These songs have been arranged to cater for the different parts of choral groups: Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass. The 34 songs in the PDF file are as follows:
