Vox in Rama
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Vox in Rama uses expressive fourth leaps, sequences and homophony, but on a relatively small canvas, the whole piece lasting only seventy-two breves. The story of Rachel weeping for her lost children is perhaps the most harrowing of all the penitential texts. (It also provided the model for a setting by the Jacobean English composer George Kirbye, as shown by D Humphreys, Early Music 2008.)
