Westminster Cathedral Choir, James O'Donnell (conductor)
Padilla’s six-part Lamentations are properly traditional, being set almost archaicly in polyphony that is firmly based on the Spanish (Toledo) Lamentation tone. As always the Hebrew letters—Aleph, Beth, and so on—are composed to sad flowing vocalizations between the verses.

from notes by Bruno Turner © 1990

Les Lamentations à six parties de Padilla sont des plus traditionnelles, avec une mise en musique quasi archaïque, en polyphonie, solidement fondée sur le tonus lamentationum espagnol (Tolède). Comme toujours, les lettres hébraïques (aleph, beth, etc.) font l’objet de mornes vocalisations fluides entre les versets.

Français: Hypérion

Padillas sechstimmige Lamentationen sind angemessen traditionell, nahezu archaisch in polyphonem Satz vertont, der fest auf dem spanischen (Toledo) Lamentationston basiert. Wie üblich werden die hebräischen Buchstaben—Aleph, Beth, usw.—mit trist-fließenden Gesangsmelismen zwischen die Verse eingeschoben.
