Couperin: Première Lecon de Ténèbres pour le Mercredy Saint. Text: The Lamentations of Jeremiah, Chapter 1, Verses 1-5.
Within the liturgy of the Catholic Church there is a long tradition of singing the Lamentations of Jeremiah during Holy Week, based on a parallel being drawn between the text’s description of the destruction of Jerusalem in 586 BC and the death of Christ.
With two members of the London Baroque, Charles Medlam, bass viol and Terence Charlston, organ.
International Record Review: outstanding.
