For chamber choir

Published by Donemus

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.
