This text from the Lamentations of Jeremiah was a favourite with sixteenth-century composers and their patrons because of its emotive language and its apparent resonance with the grievances and hopes of competing religious factions during a period of ideological extremism, vicious polemic, economic instability and unbridled violence not unlike our own. How little we learn! The music is by Jacquet of Mantua, Philip van Wilder, Jacobus Vaet, Derick Gerarde, William Byrd and Ippolito Baccusi. For five and voices: S[S]ATT/BarB. xvi + 52 pages
