The sorrow and lament experienced by the prophet Jeremias as he witnessed the exile of the Jewish nation into Babylonian captivity is palpable in this text from Lamentations 1:12. These words are often used in Christian tradition on Holy Saturday. It’s mournfulness stands in sharp contrast to the exultation of the resurrection; “surexit.” The image evoked in this setting is that of a crowd, mourning at the foot of the cross on which Jesus had just died. The listener: a person simply passing through this terrible scene, surrounded by cries of sorrow. A split choir configuration will provide the best aural effect with soprano/alto on one side and tenor/bass opposite.
