Tenebrae means 'darkness' or 'shadows'.

The service of Tenebrae, traditionally part of the devotions for Holy Week, is a way of entering into Jesus's overshadowing by human sin and human violence, the light of Christ extinguished by the shadow of death and the darkness of sin. In music, silence, scripture and psalmody we look towards the death of our Lord.
