Semana Santa processions Seville 2012 evidence




















Had a beautiful experience in Seville last week/end for the Easter processions. Such a powerful, emotional tradition! Paradox of reaching beyond but firmly rooted in the terrestrial. Although this is clearly in the public much time is spent chasing down the processions (or crossing the processions) on small side streets. Thanks to Patricia Terry for the guidance.

Here are the processions we witnessed:

Friday Midnight to 1400

El Silencio
El Grand Poder (entering church at dawn)
La Macarena
La Esperanza De Triana
Los Gitanos 

Friday 1600 - Sat 200

La O (entering church)
San Isidoro
La Mortaja

Saturday 1300 - Midnight

Los Servitas (singing nuns)
La Trinidad
El Santo Entierro (by far the most frightening, on many levels not to mention the VIPs on the route)
La Soledad (entering church at midnight, incredible huge/silent crowd and 4 amazing tributary singers form the balconies) 

Sunday morning

El Resucitado (entering church, white robes) 


Photos, in chronological order.

LONDON (Reuters) - Jim Marshall, dubbed the "Lord of Loud" for his pioneering work on guitar amplifiers used by some of the greatest names in rock music, has died aged 88.
(Reporting by Mike Collett-White, Editing by Christine Kearney)

A spokeswoman for the company he founded said he passed away in Milton Keynes, southeast England, on Thursday morning. She could not confirm reports that he had been suffering from cancer and had a series of strokes.
"It is with profound sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved founder and leader for the past 50 years, Jim Marshall," said a statement on his company's website.
"While mourning the Guv'nor though, we also salute a legendary man who led a full and truly remarkable life."
Tributes poured in for a man credited with helping to shape the sound of guitar rock.
"The news of Jim Marshall passing is deeply saddening," former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash said in a message on Twitter. "R & R will never be the same w/out him. But, his amps will live on FOREVER!"
His company said in a written tribute: "Your memory, the music and joy your amps have brought to countless millions for the past five decades and that world-famous, omnipresent script logo that proudly bears your name will always live on."

Marshall is revered as one of the four forefathers of rock music equipment along with Leo Fender, Les Paul and Seth Lover.
Born in London in 1923, he started out as a drummer before going into business and foundingMarshall Amplification in 1962.
In around 1960, a young Pete Townshend, later lead guitarist for The Who, first suggested to Marshall that he expand his music shop to sell guitars and amplifiers as well as drums.
According to an interview Marshall gave several years ago, the London store quickly turned into a "rock'n'roll labour exchange", and Marshall hired an engineer employed by a record label to help him build prototype amplifiers.
Marshall rejected the first five attempts but was happy with the sound of the 6th -- he received 23 orders for the new equipment on the first day alone.
Legendary musicians including Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton were among the early Marshall amp users.
When Hendrix walked into the store, Marshall recalled thinking to himself: "Bloody hell, here's another American guitarist wanting something for nothing."
But the guitarist paid the full price for everything he purchased without delay.
Marshall was awarded an OBE honor for services to the music industry and to charity, and he has donated millions of pounds to "worthy causes", according to his website.
They included the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore where he was reportedly treated for tuberculosis as a child.

Jim Marshall, Amp Pioneer Known As 'The Father Of Loud,' Has Died
(by MARK MEMMOTT, npr.org)

If your ears are ringing after a show, there's a fair chance a Marshall amplifier was responsible. And that you're glad for it.
Only a special few might be able to "go to 11," as Spinal Tap famously boasted, but Marshall amps have been among the most popular with rock 'n' roll's superstars since the company was founded in 1960.
So it's with some sadness that we pass along word that company founder Jim Marshall died today in England. He was 88. A son, Terry Marshall, tells The Associated Press that his father had cancer and had recently suffered several strokes.
Tributes are showing up on Twitter from some of rock's best-known guitarists and others in the industry:
— The Who: "RIP Jim Marshall, Father of Loud." — Slash: "R & R will never be the same w/out him. But, his amps will live on FOREVER! \,,/" — Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi: "A true innovator. RIP." — Fender USA: "An icon has passed." — Gibson: "RIP Jim Marshall."
