O vos omnes

composer
1932
author of text
Responsory at Matins on Holy Saturday

 
In common with all his other choral works, Pablo Casals’ O vos omnes (Jeremiah’s words from Lamentations 1:12) was dedicated to Montserrat Abbey in Catalonia and first performed there. The Benedictine Monastery at Montserrat proved to be one of the great spiritual influences of Casals’ life. Before his reinterment in 1979 at El Vendrell in Catalonia, his remains were laid in the Montserrat sacristy. The passionate, richly-textured O vos omnes sets the words of Christ and is most suitable for performance in Holy Week.
