Bring out your tried and tested microphones

Do you still remember singing Pabasa or Pasyon, the Lenten tradition of chanting the life, passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ? Pabasa is usually sung by a group of elderly people during Holy Week. I’ve experienced joining Pabasa when I was young. The chanters usually use wireless microphones at and speakers so the message will be heard in the neighborhood where the Pabasa is held. In the absence of Pasyon chanters in your place, you can now hear Pasyon online through the website of the Catholic Bishop’s Conference of the Philippines (CBCP).
