Written between 1560 and 1569, The Lamentations of Jeremiah draw the listener into the exquisite polyphony of Thomas Tallis, said to be one of the greatest composers of the 16th century.

His mastery of musical line, intensity of expression, and simple beauty speaks directly to the listener. His contemporary William Byrd, wrote upon his death, “Tallis is dead and music dies.” The Lamentations of Jeremiah will draw us all into personal devotion to our Savior upon the Sunday of remembrance of his passion.

A superb opening to Holy Week!
