Lamentations


Live opname July 2013, Slotkoor dir. Fokko Oldenhuis.

When I heard a singer in a devastated and burned Coptic church chanting lamentations, I imagined a woman mad with grief, wandering though the ruins of a destroyed and deserted city, lamenting her fate.
This music is based on the Lamentations of Jeremiah and the destruction of Jerusalem, but it is in fact a lamentation for every city that is annihilated during the numerous wars of our time.
This is a live recording from a concert in 2013 in the St. Klara church in Nurnberg of the dutch Slotkoor, conducted by Fokko Oldenhuis.
