The Lamentations of Jeremiah may be unremittingly sad, but they have had a deep resonance for composers throughout the ages. This is a collection that reflects that diversity—from John Mundy’s setting, which highlights the grave concern over schisms in the Catholic church of the sixteenth century, through to Rudolph Mauersberger’s motet, which mourns the destruction of the city of Dresden in 1945. Two new pieces were commissioned especially for this project, and are recorded here for the first time: John Duggan’s haunting set of three Lamentations for choir, trumpet and solo soprano; and Cecilia McDowall’s exotic and powerful The Lord is Good, which was shortlisted for a BASCA award in 2012.


   




Review By Joshua Rosenblum,Opera News,September 2013

It’s illuminating to hear the breadth of musical response the same ancient texts have elicited over the centuries. The perfect, ringing intonation and velvety vocal timbres of Sospiri under Christopher Watson’s assured, versatile leadership go a long way toward making this a very gratifying listening experience. © 2013 Opera News
