The services of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Great Vigil of Easter make up one holy drama called the Triduum. The three liturgies enact the drama from the Last Supper to the Resurrection. At the beginning of the Maundy Thursday service we will hear an organ prelude and sing a hymn; likewise, organ music and a hymn will bring the Easter Vigil to a glorious close. But during the course of the Triduum, we will depart and return in silence. During the Triduum we  participate in three acts of a single Christian drama, with extended breaks between.
