(back) Subject: Semana Santa in Caracas 01 From: "Andr=E9s G=FCnther" <agun@telcel.net.ve> Date: Wed, 9 Apr 2003 10:40:18 -0400   Andres Gunther agun@telcel.net.ve   This two articles are not strictly "topic" for that I decided to post the= m in Pipechat. I try to describe how we celebrate Easter in Caracas, my nat= ive city- including some music aspects, of course! =3D=3D=3D   "Semana Santa" in Caracas   Strongly influenced by spanish tradition, mixed with ancient pagan rites, and heated up by average 100=BAF temperatures and the most sunny and dry = days of the year, the Holy Week is quite colorful in my native city.   The spanish tradition manifests itself by strong emphasis on the "Pasi=F3= n": the Suffering and Death of Our Lord, and the festivities have their apoge= e on Holy Friday. The protestant churches do their emphasis on Easter itsel= f- the Resurrection of Our Lord. My installment however relates only the traditional-folcloristic Semana Santa celebration, which has the most ancient roots: protestantism came to Venezuela scarcely hundred years ago. From Sevilla we got the tradition to make processions in the streets with the figures of the Mater Dolorosa and the Holy Grave (a glass coffin with the figure of the death Jesus Christ) as minimum; the Major Churches make processions with other figures like Jesus at the Olive Mount, Jesus tied = to the Column, Jesus crucified with the two thieves at each side- some of th= ese figures or figure groups are pretty heavy, but there always are enough voluntary people around to carry them.   Our most popular image is the "Nazareno de San Pablo": Our Lord on the Wa= y to the Calvary, carrying a silver and gold decorated cross and wearing a beautiful violet robe with rich golden embroidery. It was created by Martinez Monta=F1ez or at least one of his pupils. For us this is not an = image but a living character. Named after the ancient San Pablo Church where he was hosted until the church was demolished by Guzman Blanco (See my Organ History for reference), now he stands in the Santa Teresa Basilika. He ha= s the fame to be miraculous, and thousands of pilgrims from the countryside and even from abroad visit him every year at Holy Wednesday. Since the image -outside its status as miraculous- is a priceless artwork masterpie= ce, police and firefighters have all hands to do. The Basilika opens its door= s at 4,00 pm- many pilgrims sleep on the square the night before- and then = one solemn Mass after another is celebrated all day long. At evening there is the procession. It is common practice by many people to dress in a violet robe and make a pilgrimage as a penitence or thanksgiving action.   Pagan heritage manifests itself in bunches of "S=E1bila" (Aloe Verra)- th= e Aloe cures so many diseases that it is considered a holy plant here; more= in present times when medic consultation and Rx's are unaffordable for most people in my country. On Holy week people carry an Aloe plant bundled wit= h a scarlet ribbon from church to church and touch the "holy images" with it. Other pagan heritage is the devotion to certain characters that played a role in our history and whose spirits it's believed are very powerful, protect from evil and cure diseases. Favourites are: Doctor Jos=E9 Gregor= io Hernandez, who was a very pious and scholar physician (founder of the Tro= pic Medicine Institute at the University and the Social Security Institute am= ong others). Right now he is buried in my parish church and on his way to be canonized. (Meanwhile he has to outstand the [not ever so terrific] Organ performances by a Servant).- Other characters are Maria Lionza, who was a= n Indian Priestess able to cure every disease; "Negro Primero" Pedro Camejo= , General Paez' servant, who died at the Carabobo battle on June 24 1821 to defend his Master, and Simon Bolivar, our Liberator.   All ravings, protests, thunderings, fights, pleas and good words of our church authorities cannot do anything against these pagan roots that are inherited from african and indian ancestors since more than 400 years. As= in the whole Caribbean black and white wizardry is a very serious matter. It= 's considered as an own religion and protected by law. Outside that, the str= eet vendors have a Big Business in these days selling "sahumerio" (an inciens= e and aromatic herbs mixture against evil spirits), black and violet candle= s, medals, scapulieres, images, stamps, prayer books, rosaries, "Ojo de Zamu= ro" ('Bussard's Eye', a big, black seed that is believed to be miracolous), "Peon=EDa" (a small red seed which infusion cures certain kinds of Ebilep= sy and for that is considered miraculous against evil spirits), "milagritos"= , (miniature figures of body parts or items in gold, silver, ebony or jadestone, which are offered as "thanks-gift" to a saint to pay a favor o= r "miracle"); Aloe Verra and other medicine plants, scarlet ribbons, "Holy Bath-essences" and much, much more which description would lead too far here.   "Semana Santa" is vacation time in Venezuela. The banks, almost all shops and offices, many restaurants and entertainment centers are closed from H= oly Wednesday noon to Easter Monday in Caracas and other cities (excepting tourism centers of course). To work on Holy Friday it's said will bring great disgrace. A steady joke from a Servant is that on the Holy Days you can play chess on "Avenida Urdaneta", the six lane, usually traffic jamme= d main avenue of the city. For this reason processions can take place witho= ut major problems: churchgoers go mostly by foot, non churchgoers are away a= t the beach.   Average *catholic* church attendance is down to 1% according to latest statistics. But this attendance jumps up to 30% or more on the "Holy days= ". Churches are full to the rooftop. To avoid noise and disorder some rules have to be broken, among them the "no music-no organ" rule. This is an ancient tradition- I described it in my "Organ History". Thanks to it the members of the "Chacao School" (and later on many composers more) wrote beautiful Good Friday-music. These works are performed "religiously" (in both senses of the expression) every year since their rediscovering in ea= rly 20th cty, being the most popular work the "Popule Meus" by Jose Angel Lam= as.   Jos=E9 Angel Lamas (1775 - 1814) doesn't appear in my Organ History becau= se he was no organist. He played the "Baj=F3n", a kind of Contrafagot that was = used to acompany the sacred chants in the Caracas Cathedral- after the Chapel Master and the Organist the "Bajonista" was the most important man in the staff. Lamas was our local counterpart to W.A. Mozart. He studied in the "Chacao School" and wrote many works of high music quality with a minimum of technical exigencies (in "Mannheimer Stil" as usual). He died in such a misery that his friends had to pay the burial expenses, avoiding with thi= s to have him buried on a common grave. Anyway his grave got lost when the = San Pablo church and cementary were demolished. His "Popule Meus" and "Misa e= n Re" (Mass in D major) are his most popular works. The Popule Meus was arranged for keyboard by Jos=E9 Angel Montero- this is the arrangement I = use to perform it in my parish church on Holy Wednesday and Holy Friday.   Will be ctnd... =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D First was the cat, then was the Orgler.

It is particularly interesting in light of the following encomium from perhaps = an unexpected quarter:   Leon J. Podles discusses Latin American folk traditions of this kind in = his book _The Church Impotent_. I'm not sure that the clergy's opposition to these ceremonies is entirely because of their syncretism. They can also = be bloody and painful. In some places the participants may go so far as to lacerate their flesh with shards of broken glass. But Podles essentially defends them persuasively as providing an outlet for a distinctly *masculine* spirituality. When a Christian tradition becomes so = thoroughly domesticated and sanitized that it can accommodate nothing of the kind, eventually it is left with about 70% women in the congregation on Sundays, and young clergy complaining that seminary never prepared them for the = fact that they would see hardly any men around the church throughout the rest = of the week.

Many are available, and nearly all will include diagrams to help answer your questions. Look for chapters or sections on "current flow" (or something similar) to explain how "polarity" works. After you figure out polarity, you can find a book about basic electronics and figure out diodes.   Neither of your questions is "rocket science" -- don't be afraid of all those funny electrical terms! :-) :-)   Good luck --   Tim (who could easily 'splain it to you in person, but *typing it* is another matter entirely. Anyway, too many other folks have already written it down...! <VBG>)
