Stations of the Cross - a Resource for Holy Week

For the more classical of heart this provides a meditative journey through the ten stations with music from Bach and Handel and paintings by Caravaggio. One could adapt the concept for you services although it is meant for private devotion.
Ten Stations of the Cross
The First Station:

The Arrest of Jesus

Picture: Caravaggio: The Taking of Christ     [large picture]

Music: J.S. Bach. Kommt, ihr Töchter, helft mir klagen from the St Matthew Passion.  Sung by the Cologne Cathedral Children's Choir and the Dresden Chamber Choir with the Cologne Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Helmut Muller-Bruhl.  Licensed courtesy of Naxos.
