Time-lapse video of Easter decorating
Good Friday to Easter in 30 seconds. After Good Friday services there is a complete transformation at Chicago’s St. John Cantius Church. The stripped altar with its stark violet veils blooms with flowers and decorations in preparation for the glorious Easter Mass.
The accompanying music is by St. John Cantius’ own St. Cecilia Choir singing the motet Cantate Domino canticum novum by Heinrich Schütz.
