It’s her feast day after all. So to honor her, have a listen to Francisco Guerrero’s Maria Magdalene et altera Maria.

Translation, brought to you by The Chant Cafe’s Nathan Knutson:

Mary Magdalene and the other Mary bought spices, intending to go and anoint Jesus.

And very early on the first day of the week they came to the tomb just after sunrise, alleluia.

And as they entered the tomb they saw a young man sitting on the right dressed in a white robe, and they were afraid.

He said to them: You seek Jesus of Nazareth who was crucified: he is risen, he is not here, see, this is the place where they laid him. Alleluia.
