Incipit lamentatio Jeremiae prophetae
There are two sets of Lamentations by Allegri in the Sistine Chapel Archives, both scored modestly for four voices. The setting of the first Lamentation on Maundy Thursday is the more adventurous and is scored for an SSAT ensemble which allows Allegri to enjoy the possibilities of suspensions between the two upper parts, especially at the words ‘Plorans ploravit in nocte’.
