Lamentations

Lamentations 2: 8, 11

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Brumel’s only surviving set of Lamentations, one of the most beautiful in the repertory, is also one of the most sombre, building up a rare mood of desolation by low scoring and slow harmonic movement. As was customary, the Hebrew letters (in this case Heth and Caph) are set separately from the main body of the text; less usual was the conception of the last section in triple time, though this suits rather well the accents in the word ‘Ierusalem’.
