The Lamentations of Jeremiah by Tallis, Morales, and Lassus

In the 7th century before Jesus Christ, Jerusalem was conquered by Nebuchadnezzar II, king of Babylon. The destruction of the Temple of Solomon, the ruin of the Kingdom of Judah, and the captivity of the Jews in Babylon were depicted in the Lamentations of the prophet Jeremiah. This text, which considers this defeat to be a punishment from God, inspired several great composers of the Renaissance. This program features three magnificent and moving polyphonic Lamentations from the 16th century—by Briton Thomas Tallis, Spaniard Cristóbal de Morales, and Flemish-German Roland de Lassus—, each adapting the charms of counterpoint in the spirit of his respective nation.
