Lamentations of Jeremiah

Not since the early 1600s have the refulgent strains of John Mundy's Lamentations setting been heard in Windsor. It has been reconstructed especially for this recording, made in Windsor Castle's Albert Memorial Chapel by gracious permission of Her Majesty The Queen. The men's voices resonate in the resplendent chapel acoustic, transcending the desolation of the texts' anguished laments in singing of extraordinary conviction and certainty.
