The Lamentations of Jeremiah

Not since the early 1600s have the refulgent strains of John Mundy’s Lamentations setting been heard in Windsor. The work has been reconstructed especially for this recording, made in Windsor Castle’s Albert Memorial Chapel by gracious permission of Her Majesty The Queen, and it is joined by settings of the same text by Alfonso Ferrabosco the Younger, Osbert Parsley, Byrd and Tallis, the latter three all dating from a decade in which English composers were exceptionally preoccupied by these Biblical verses. The men’s voices resonate in the resplendent chapel acoustic, transcending the desolation of the anguished text in singing of extraordinary conviction and certainty.

"The Clerks give a tremendous performance"


"The recording quality is excellent and the CD uniformly interesting regardless of its sorrowful theme."
