Holy Friday

All churches set forth the procession of their flower-covered Holy Sepulchres (i.e. carved wooden biers that symbolize the Tomb of Christ) in well-tempered order. Each is followed by parishioners, and with the participation of marching bands, choral ensembles, local schools, scouts and others. The chorister bodies of each church (especially the Metropolitan and Municipal ones) in deep devotion sing the “Encomia” (Hymns of Praise), whereas marching bands provide appropriate airs in arrangements of music from the western tradition: The Adagio by Tomaso Albinoni (the Corfu Philharmonic Society); Marcia Funebre by Giuseppe
Verdi (the “Mantzaros” Philharmonic Society); and the funeral elegy Sventura by Giuseppe Mariani and Marche Funebre by Frédéric Chopin (the “Kapodistrias” Philharmonic Association).
