2739 – When the Curtain Comes Down II

Not only is the tradition of hanging a lenten cloth in front of the altar alive in Carinthia and not only do we have some pretty old specimen, no, even new ones are created today. Sometimes they are created by artists, sometimes by school children.

At 7 times 5 meters, the artist Karl Wolschner’s face of Jesus in Maria Saal is the largest lenten cloth in Carinthia. It was created between 1990 and 1994.

One more time is “When the Curtain Comes Down” from Diane Krall’s album “Glad Rag Doll” the Song of the Day. Hear it on YouTube.
