Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The five-part Lamentations (two separate laments customarily sung together) are consummate pieces of vocal architecture, the emotion carefully channelled in both halves towards the concluding phrase ‘Ierusalem, Ierusalem, convertere ad Dominum Deum tuum’. The power of White’s setting of these famous words has been apparent to those who have heard it almost since the day it was written: the scribe of the unique source of the work added (in Latin) at the end of his transcription: ‘Not even the words of the gloomy prophet sound so sad as the sad music of my composer.’
